Additions to the booklets on Rubaiyat artists

October 29, 2021

Over the past few years, Bob Forrest has published an excellent series of booklets which pull together his research on particular artists who have illustrated the Rubaiyat and the editions of their work.  For more information on the first fourteen booklets in the series, follow the link at the end of this post.*

Over the past year, Bob has produced another five booklets in this series, bringing the total available to nineteen.  The booklets have been distributed privately only, but copies have been given to the main legal deposit libraries and some other libraries in the UK and can be consulted through them.  The new booklets available are as follows.

No.15 The Rubaiyat of “Anne Marie” 

No.16 Ronald Balfour (1896-1941)  

No.17 Ned Wethered (1890-1964)

No.18 Margaret R Caird (1896-1961)

No.19 Lawrence Andrew Patterson (1896-1964)

All the booklets are very well produced, with many illustrations in colour as well as black and white.  They can be accessed via the following UK libraries.

·         the British Library,

·         the National Library of Scotland,

·         the National Library of Wales,

·         the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford,

·         the University Library, Cambridge,

·         the Library of Trinity College, Dublin,

·         the National Art Library, London,

·         the Library of the Royal Academy of Arts, London.

If you can’t get to see this material at one of these libraries, the content is also available on Bob Forrest’s website http://www.bobforrestweb.co.uk/The_Rubaiyat/N_and_Q/ .
