Description
Believed to have been created soon after Geoffrey Chaucer's death in 1400, the Ellesmere manuscript of the Canterbury Tales is the most famous English literary manuscript to survive from the Middle Ages. It is the most complete, authentic version of the Canterbury Tales and the greatest literary treasure in the Huntington Library's collections. This full-sized facsimile edition was prepared from the same transparencies used for the landmark color facsimile edition, but was printed only in monochrome sepia to make it more readily affordable. Even so, it faithfully conveys the trim, texture, and decoration of the original manuscript pages, and features a color frontispiece—the illuminated page that begins the Knight's Tale.
