Kashani [ca. 1960] - II

RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM. Tehran, Kashani, [ca. 1960]

Spiral bound, oblong presentation edition, with 50 quatrains, printed on one side of the leaf only. Probably intended as a gift book as the cover leaves a little open space for a dedication message. There were other, slightly different, booklets produced, with a varying number of quatrains.

Quatrains from Edward FitzGerald's translation (1859). Three quatrains appear twice: nrs. 5 (= 37), 21 (= 41) and 19 (= 29)

Number of quatrains:
