A contemporary review of Cecil G Trew’s ‘Reveries of Omar Khayyam’

September 13, 2019

In the previous post, Joe Howard mentions a contemporary newspaper article about Cecil G Trew’s  illustrated version of FitzGerald’s Rubaiyat which appeared in 1929 under the title of ‘Reveries of Omar Khayyam’.  He has provided a copy of this article which was published in the Los Angeles Times of May 5th 1929, and it is reproduced below.  It provides an interesting view of attitudes to the Rubaiyat at that time, as well as much information about the publication plans for the work, which Joe has commented on above.
