Rubaiyat artists: A request for information

September 30, 2020

Danton O’Day is working on a catalogue of Rubaiyat artists and he is seeking information on some lesser known artists. He writes as follows: if you can help please comment below.

An earlier book by Danton O’Day

I’m in the final stages of compiling a catalog of the first artists of the Rubaiyat and haven’t been able to track down pictures for the work of the following artists: Edwin Edwards, T.R.R. Ryder, G.A. Pownall and L.E. (initials only). Another artist has been suggested but I can find no evidence they worked on a Rubaiyat. If anyone has any information on the artist F.J. Buttera (1900), I would appreciate it. Anyone who sends me pictures by the aforementioned artists will be sent a free copy of my book when its done—it will be the most complete document to date covering the work of over 180 illustrators and page decorators.

    Danton, we can provide some information on most of these artists. We’ll send what we know directly to you. Best, S&B

    re: Danton O’ Day & Illustrators. Is the book solely on British illustrators of editions in English or does it also cover foreign language illustrators?

    Hi, the book covers all of the artists (illustrators and page decorators) who did artwork on FitzGerald’s versions of the Rubaiyat from his first edition to 1929. Danton O’Day
