The Canterbury Tales: A Facsimile and Transcription of the Hengwrt Manuscript, With Variations from the Ellesmere Manuscript
The Canterbury Tales
A Facsimile and Transcription of the Hengwrt Manuscript, With Variations from the Ellesmere Manuscript
Hardcover      ISBN: 0806114169
This facsimile edition is a complete reproduction of the most reliable of the medieval manuscripts of The Canterbury Tales-the Hengwrt Manuscript (or Peniarth 392 D), now in the National Library of Wales, in Aberystwyth, Cardiganshire. Because it is to serve as the basic text of the Tales for the projected multivolume Variorum Edition of Chaucer’s complete works, much deliberation was given to the choice of the Hengwrt Manuscript. Scribed in the late fourteenth or early fifteenth century, it is one of the earliest extant manuscripts of the Tales.

volume 1 of a variorum edition of the works of geoffrey chaucer. edited by paul g. ruggiers.

Twenty leading Jamesians, in chapters written especially for this reference volume, canvas all areas of Henry James studies, including James's own criticism and critical theory, his novels, tales, plays, travel writings, notebooks, letters, and autobiographies, and his critical reception. In command of the full arsenal of the James "industry," including some 700 sources cited, they provide the broadest assessment of Jamesian scholarship available in a single volume. Also featured are two appendixes comprising annotated chronologies, one of James's principal publications in book form, the other of landmarks of James criticism and scholarship.
