about this item

The edition of The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer published by the Kelmscott Press in 1896 combined the talents of William Morris, one of England's greatest typographers and printers, and those of artist Sir Edward Burne-Jones, who created the 87 full-page woodcut illustrations. For students of Chaucer, English literature, English printing history, and 19th-century British art, the Kelmscott Chaucer is a unique treasure. Originally published in a limited edition of fewer than 500 copies — hardly any of which surface on the rare book market — this masterpiece is now available to a new generation of collectors and bibliophiles.
