Geoffrey Chaucer
The Works of Our Ancient Learned English Poet
Adam Islip, 1602. [English Literature] [Antiquarian] Chaucer, Geoffrey; The Works of Our Ancient Learned English Poet; London; 1602; Adam Islip; slightly smaller Folio (12.5 x 8.75 inches); F. 377 (plus glossary) [lacking a few preliminary leaves and signature S]; second Speght edition. This re-backed calfbound hardcover can be the centerpiece of a serious Chaucer collection. Period leather in good condition; normal rubbing to boards and handling/shelf wear to extremities; binding is square and tight. A bit of light penciling to top of endpapers; text shows normal toning and edgewear; some foxing; a few of the preliminary leaves have been repaired. Marbled textblock edges. Overall, good to very good. A beautiful (and frankly very cool) book from the late Elizabethan Age. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
