Comments

Unlike most Heritage Press volumes - which are usually reprints of books issued by the Limted Editions Club - the Arthur Szyk illustrated Rubaiyat was commissioned by Heritage Press and this is the true first edition. To quote the colophon leaf: "The special contents of this edition are copyright 1946 by The Heritage Press for the George Macy Companies Inc. The illustrations for this edition were drawn in colour and gold by Arthur Szyk, and engraved in London by the Sun Engraving Company. The text was set, and the pages made-up in English Monotype Sachsenwald with Albertus Capitals, to the design and under the direction of Ernest Ingham at the Fanfare Press, in London."
