Timeless Romance

Inside the original 1910 version of this sumptuous binding lay one of the oldest and most effortlessly romantic stories ever written. This gilt and crushed blue levant morocco binding by Émile-Philippe Mercier contained Jacques Amyot's French translation of the tale Daphnis and Chloe. The original story was composed by the 2nd-century Greek author Longus, a little-known writer assumed to have been a freedman of a Roman family.

Daphnis and Chloe were the fictional lovers against whom all others can be measured. Their story was the inspiration for one of contemporary cinema’s most beloved films, The Princess Bride. Daphnis and Chloe were naïve lovers separated by pirate abductions and battles aplenty. But love prevails and in the end they are restored to pastoral, wedded bliss.

Our Daphnis and Chloe journals feature orange and purple designs. Orange is associated with Daphnis for its suggestion of joy and warmth, freedom and creativity. Purple, the colour of Chloe, combines wisdom and calm, dignity and mystery.
