1879-Canterbury Chimes

Storr, Francis and Hawes Turner.  Canterbury Chimes or Chaucer Tales retold for Children.  Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1879.

This is one of number of editions that have adapted the Ellesmere prints for their illustrations.

A first edition of this book was published in 1878 in London by C. Kegan Paul and Co. and yet another by Kegan Paul, and Trench, Trubner and Co. in 1895. Each uses the same images. The inferior quality of the prints in this edition would indicate that these prints were reproduced from a copy of the Kegan Paul 1878 edition and were not printed from the same blocks as the Kegan Paul edition.
