Rejane, whose birth name was Gabrielle-Charlotte Reju, was acclaimed for her vivacity and expressive range. She opened the Theatre Rejane in Paris in 1906, and was knighted in the Legion of Honor three months before her death. The quotation she has written here is from the French poet and playwright Albert de Mussett. Left edge ragged from previous binding. Lightly toned. Ink note (unknown hand) right edge on face poor contrast. Otherwise fine condition.
