Engraved illustration of the pilgrims leaving the Tabard Inn on the first text leaf and a half-page engraved illustration of each of the pilgrims at the commencement of each tale. [vi], [50], 626, 82pp very tall large folio, full early calf (probably contemporary) on heavy boards professionally and sympathetically rebacked with raised bands and red leather morocco label gilt, an attractive copy, London, Lintot, 1727. PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE SENT ON REQUEST. *The Works of Chaucer were first printed in 1532, followed by editions in 1542, 1561 (Stowe), and 1598 (Speght). Urry's important luxurious 1727 edition was the next to be published and kept Chaucer's name alive for the 18thC and into the 19thC. It was the first to be printed in Roman, not Gothic type. In it appeared for the first time, The Tale of Gamelyn, The Pardoner and the Tapster, an account of what happened after the pilgrims had reached Canterbury, and The Second Merchant's Tale, or Tale of Beryn. Although interesting in themselves, none of these "Tales" are in fact by Chaucer. Urry was a friend of the antiquarian, Thomas Hearne, and was one of a number of scholars in the early eighteenth century who undertook research into Anglo-Saxon, and early English. This edition includes an extensive "Glossary explaining the obsolete and difficult words in Chaucer." The work was left unfinished at Urry's death, and the final revision and completion were entrusted to Timothy Thomas, who wrote the preface and glossary. The life of Chaucer was originally written by John Dart, but was revised and altered by William Thomas. A spectacular edition of Chaucer.
