Forrest, Bob

The Rubaiyat of "Anne Marie". Bob Forrest. Manchester : [Bob Forrest], 2020. 13 pages, 16 pages of plates : illustrations (some in colour) ; 30 cm.
Rubaiyat Artists No. 15.

A study of an unfinished manuscript of the Rubaiyat illustrated by an artist who names herself on the title–page as “Anne Marie”, but whose full name was Annemarie Bonnet. The MS was intended for publication by Ben Abramson of New York, but for reasons unknown was never actually published. The article features all of her Rubaiyat illustrations, as well as those done for two other books published by Abramson, an interesting and well documented character in his own right, to whom some background space is devoted. But who was Annemarie Bonnet?
