This book is over 100 years old and was very well read. It has a suede leather cover and at one time had gold gilding on the page edges, but most of that is gone. I would say the book is in fragile condition. The cover is worn and has a few scrapes. Inside, the first few pages are completely separated and the ones that are not are barely hanging on to the cover. The only writing I see inside is a handwritten personal message on one of the front pages that says "Fred Grant Campbell from Daisy".
The book measures about 5.5 by 4 inches. There are 101 pages and they are all here. There is a tag on the back inside cover from a book store in San Francisco.
Info from Wikipedia:
"The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam is the title that Edward FitzGerald gave to his translation of a selection of poems, originally written in Persian and of which there are about a thousand attributed to Omar Khayyam, a Persian poet, mathematician and astronomer. A ruba'I is a two line stanza with two parts (or hemistichs) per line, hence the word rubaiyat.

SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
