Finely bound edition of The Canterbury Tales of Geoffrey Chaucer illustrated by William Russell Flint. Octavo, bound in full morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe with gilt titles and tooling to the spine in six compartments within raised gilt bands, gilt titles and central gilt motif of an armored knight on horseback, gilt ruling to the panels, top edge gilt, gilt turn-ins and inner dentelles, marbled endpapers. Elaborately illustrated with full color plates after the drawings of William Russell Flint including tissue-guarded frontispiece. In near fine condition. A lovely example.

A collection of 24 stories written in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer between 1387 and 1400, The Canterbury Tales is is near-unanimously seen as Chaucer's magnum opus. Chaucer's use of such a wide range of classes and types of people composing the characters throughout the tales was without precedent in English and the work still offers a variety of insights into customs and practices of the time.
