Lalla Rookh by Thomas Moore, published by Henry Altemus 1800's

This book falls definitely under the “Book as Art” heading. Not only is the content beautifully written, with lovely illustrations the way this book is "manufactured" by Henry Altemus, Philadelphia is a second art bonus. This book is bound in a lovely green embossed allover design which is stamped with gold floral embossing There are copyrighted engravings by S.E. Cassino. Thomas Moore published Lalla Rookh in 1817. The title is taken from the name of the heroine of the frame tale, the daughter of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. Engaged to the young king of Bactria, Lalla Rookh goes forth to meet him, but falls in love with a poet she encounters on the way. The bulk of the poem consists of four interpolated tales sung by the poet: The Veiled Prophet of Khorassan (loosely based upon the story of Al-Muqanna), Paradise and the Peri, The Fireworshippers, and The light of the Harem. When Lalla Rookh enters the palace of her bridegroom she swoons away, but revives at the sound of a familiar voice. She awakes with rapture to find that the poet she loves is none other than the prince to whom she is engaged. Book is in very good condition with only some wear and some minor bumping to the top and bottom of the spine. Otherwise it is clean, odorless and tight.
