This is an auction for THE RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM.

Translated by Edward Fitzgerald.

"Omar Khayyam (1048-1122) was an Islamic scholar who was a poet as well as a mathematician. He compiled astronomical tables and contributed to calendar reform and discovered a geometrical method of solving cubic equations by intersecting a parabola with a circle."

Some quotations:

A Book of Verses underneath the bough,
A Jug of wine, a Loaf of Bread - and thou
Beside me singing in the wilderness -
Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!

The moving finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all your piety nor wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
Nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.
