The Exact Reproduction 1896 Kelmscott Chaucer

This is the exact reproduction of The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer as produced by William Morris’ renowned Kelmscott Press in 1896. At 17 1/2"-high, this hardcover replica—written in Middle English as it would have appeared in the 14th century—captures the same details as the original, including its ornamental borders, initial capitals, and illustrations that were drawn by Victorian painter Edward Burne-Jones, who assigned the phrase “a pocket cathedral” to the work. Its deckled-edged and gilded paper, produced by a mill that replicates the stock selected by Morris, displays The Canterbury Tales and other works in rich detail. The debossed pigskin leather cover secures with two metal clasps designed after a 15th-century original. 17" H x 12" W x 3" D. (12 lbs.)
