Chaucer Illustrated. Five hundred Years of The Canterbury Tales in Pictures.

William Finley, Joseph Rosenblum

Hardcover 445 p, 12 col pls, many b/w illus (Oak Knoll Press and the British Library 2003).
Chaucer's Canterbury Tales has been been a constant favourite for publishers since its composition in the 14th century. Its characterisation and dramatic tales have also lent themselves well to illustration. This collection of ten illustrated essays surveys 500 years of illustration from the early 15th-century Ellesmere manuscript, through the vivdly-realised paintings of Blake to more recent publications. The chapters also reflect the rich variety of media that have been used through the centuries, such as manuscript, wood carvings and copper plate.
