The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. Translated by Edward FitzGerald. 114 quatrains from all editions. Illustrated by Austin P. Torney. CreateSpace, 2008. ISBN: 978-1438225524.

114 quatrains are presented via a merge of the first four editions of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, translated by Edward FitzGerald, and illustrated and arranged by Austin P. Torney. The 80+ illustrations, all in color, are a mixture of ancient and modern styles, ranging from Austin's own nature compositions to his enhancement of engravings and drawings obtained from very old books. This is the small format deluxe edition and has a few extras beyond the larger edition. Austin has also written and published his own 'Rubaiyat of Austin P. Torney'. This publication celebrates the nearly two hundred years since Edward FitzGerald was born. (From Amazon website)
