Canterbury Tales Dot Com

The original editions of one of the earliest classics of English literature are finally online, half a millenium after they were first printed. The originals of William Caxton’s two editions of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, believed to have been printed in 1476 and 1483, are both in the British Library. Chaucer began the Tales in 1387 and died - before they were complete - in 1400. The British Library Web site has extensive information on the works and their author, but in particular about Caxton and the first print editions.
