Rubaiyat Artists No. 21.

In 1907 James Hewetson & Son first published an edition of The Rubaiyat, illustrated by Marie Préaud Webb. It is Potter #38. Little is generally known about the artist, but thanks to online ancestry records and newspaper archives it is possible to glean some details of her life, and also those of her publisher and his son, not to mention the strange story of the Domes of Silence.
