1845 John Saunders: Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales-Volume 1

Saunders, John.  Canterbury Tales, from Chaucer.  In Two Volumes.  London:  Charles Knight and Co., 1845. 3 1/2″ x 6″.

Saunders, John.  Cabinet Pictures of English Life.  Chaucer.  London: Charles Knight and Co., 1845.  3 1/2″ x 6″.

In the two copies I have, all three volumes are bound together.  I do not know how common for them to be so bound.  Most of the images in Cabinet Pictures are based on the images first used in 1841 in Knight’s Penny Magazine, but these images are smaller than those and the quality of the engravings is not as good.
