Pierre and Janine Soisson, translated by David Macrae, Byzantium, Geneva, Minerva, 1977. Dark red cloth hc, 8vo, 144 pp, many bw, color and monochromatic illustrations; glossy white DJ with mosaic illustration. "The Byzantine Empire succeeded the Empire of Rome." "The name Byzantium conjures up images of gilded cupolas... memories of a refined, decadent civilization, dominated by the lavish splendor of Theodora, with her ornate, jewel-studded elegance, and by the most pointless discussions about the sex of angels." Ex-lib (G/G): ex-library with pocket and tape damage, clean, unmarked; DJ lightly bumped and scuffed, clipped.
