Summary Each of the 179 pictures in this handsome book is accompanied by indications of source and date, and often by explanatory and reference material. The portrayals of Chaucer, his friends and associates, the poets he admired, and the places he knew, are drawn mainly from the period 1340 to 1415. Originally published in 1978. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
