Re: [miniaturebooks] The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
- Hello Susan,
The "Rubaiyat" of Omar Khayyam is one of the most published miniatures ever,
from 1862 untill recently.
The copy you mentioned is published in London (by Anthony Treherne & Co
as you wrote) in 1903. It was published in a series called The
Classics togethet with titles like Sonnets from the Portuguese, Elegy in a
Country Church-yard etc. As far as I can see from a copy in my own
dimensions are 2 3/4 x 2 1/8 inches (binding). Anthony Treherne has
a lot of miniature books in a very short periode of time (most between 1902
1906). All of them are very well printed in a 8-point type and bound in
or leather. The books are not very rare but are of course of interest for a
of miniature books.
