First British edition. Octavo, original patterned batik-style paper covered boards with white cloth spine, green titles to spine. 351 pp. Foxing to page edges, a near fine copy in a very good dust jacket, slightly chipped at spine head, light overall foxing. The American edition precedes, but Knopf's London imprint was not successful, and the British edition is very scarce.


A superb romance telling of the life of Omar Khayyam, the poet of the 'Rubaiyat' in ancient Persia, and of the blood pact between the three students: Omar, the poet; Nizam-El-Mulk, one day to be Grand Vizier; and Hassan-Ibn-Sabbah, the founder of the Assassins of the Mountains.
