Stavros Melissinos -- Persian Rubaiyat hardcover

Athens, Greece: Stavros Melissinos, 1968. Third Edition, Limited Bi-Lingual Edition of 2000 copies only. Hardcover. Autographed. Author has autographed page 9 under his photo with date 3/17/71. Bilingual with Greek on the left hand pages and English on the right hand pages.

Rare limited Greek edition published (and signed) by the author. English translation by Nicholas Bassett.

Stavros Melissinos was born in 1929 and is well known in Athens and around the world as the poet-sandelmaker of Greece. His books of poetry, plays and essays have been translated into English, French, German and Italian and his best known work The Rubaiyat is on the curriculum of a number of American universities. He has been the subject of documentaries on the BBC and three American networks and his works are in the Harvard and Oxford libraries. He has also translated the works of many literary greats into Greek. His play Chastitity Belt was banned in Greece for political reasons, which makes him quite proud.

The shop of The Poet has attracted some of the biggest names in art and culture of the last half century including the Beatles, Sophia Loren, Rudolph Nureyev, Margo Fontaine, Jackie Onassis, Anthony Quinn, George Pappard, Ursula Andress, Joseph Cotten and Gary Cooper who have all worn the sandals of the poet.

He tells of the first of many visits by the Beatles in 1968. "First of all one of them comes, the intellectual one...Lennon. He told me he had found my works somewhere. Then they all came in, like the seven dwarfs. There were bodyguards too and we had to close the shop because their followers would have wrecked the place. They all bought many pairs. Later my children asked why I did not ask for their autographs. Why did they not ask for mine? I will be around long after the Beatles".

Shipping And Payment Info

Books can be shipped worldwide via any method.
I will combine shipping. Winners of multiple items save substantially on shipping costs.

Within the US: Media Mail shipping is calculated automatically based on weight. NOTE: Media Mail can be S-L-O-W sometimes, especially to the West Coast. Media Mail delivery time is usually anywhere from 4 to 10 days, but occasionally it takes 2 weeks or even longer to reach the West Coast from here. Please consider this potential delay before you decide to go with Media Mail instead of Priority Mail.

Priority Mail is a highly recommended option, it's a lot faster and much more secure. Cost is reasonable and calculated based on your zip code.

Shipping costs include delivery confirmation for all US orders.

    Combine shipping with other items: The cost of each extra item is calculated automatically based on weight.

Outside the US: shipping is calculated automatically based on your country and the weight of the book. IMPORTANT: Priority Mail International and Express Mail International are the only services which provide tracking. First Class Mail International is normally a very reliable service, but it does not provide tracking so if you choose First Class Mail International you agree not to hold me responsible in the unlikely event of loss or damage to the package -- please review my 14 years of 15000+ positive feedbacks if you have any concerns, and contact me for more details.

    Combine shipping with other items: The cost of each extra item is calculated automatically based on weight. NOTE: all international packages weighing over 4 pounds MUST be shipped via Priority Mail or Express Mail.

I can usually accommodate special shipping requests or special payment requirements, just ask.
