1484–Caxton’s 2nd Edition

Latham, Robert, ed.  The Canterbury Tales.  Photography by Edward Leigh.  London:  Paradine Publications Limited in association with Magdalene College, Cambridge, 1973.
This is a facsimile of Pepys’s copy of The Canterbury Tales.  In the Prologue several of the woodcuts are used for more than one pilgrim.  The Franklin, Merchant, and Summoner are each represented by the same image as are the Doctor of Physik and the Parson, the Merchant and the Franklin, and The Clerk and the Knight’s Yeoman.
