Housed in the binder's morocco-edged slipcaseDiehl's history of the Empress Theodora wife of Justinian I, and one of the most influential women of her time. Justinian I listened to her advice regarding political decisions, and she is credited with influencing reforms, such as expanding divorce rights regarding property ownership to women, as well as other rights for women and children. Born in 497 CE, she reigned from 527 CE until her death at age fifty-one in 548 CE.René Kieffer (1875-1964) worked for ten years at the famed Chambolle-Duru bindery in Paris, specializing in gilding, before establishing his own workshop in 1903. He debuted at the 1903 Salon des Artistes Françcais, and, evolving toward to more modern approach, became a disciple of the great Marius-Michel. At the time of this binding's creation he had begun to incorporate a transitional mix of flowers, vines, and colorful onlays in rather formal compositions, their Art Nouveau motifs retained within symmetrical borders that revealed his classical roots. By the end of World War I he had emerged as one of Paris's leading binders, his work sought after by collectors, his fine workmanship matched by a wide range of progressive designs. Charles Diehl (1859-1944) was a French historian and a leading authority on Byzantine art and history.Manuel Orazi was an Italian art nouveau illustrator and poster artist. He was born in Rome in 1860 and died in Paris in 1934. He also illustrated novels such as Aphrodite by Pierre Louÿs and Les Fleurs du mal by Baudelaire. Bookseller Inventory #
