Written by a professor with experience teaching at several universities and an MSc graduate who was awarded multiple scholarships, there is insight and guidance in this volume that cannot be matched.

Dan is a retired Biology professor (University of Toronto Mississauga) who has written over 130 research articles and written and edited several books. He is also a songwriter and avid book collector. Over the past three years he has been documenting the early history of art of Edward FitzGerald’s Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam which has culminated in the three volume set, “The Golden Age of Rubáiyát Art, 1884, 1913”. Considered by many to be a jack of all trades (which implies master of none), he simply finds all aspects of life interesting. His major failing in life is golf but his fairly good grasp of Elizabethan English helps his game a bit.
