Chaucer, Geoffrey (d. 1400). The Canterbury Tales: The New Ellesmere Chaucer Facsimile (of Huntington Library MS EL 26 C 9). Daniel Woodward and Martin Stevens, eds. Tokyo: Yushodo, 1995. San Marino, Calif.: Huntington Library Press, 1995.

The Ellesmere manuscript of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales is perhaps best known for its famous illustrations of the pilgrims; it is considered one of the definitive texts of the Tales and has been the basis for several editions. This full-color facsimile of the manuscript is designed to show the drawings and text as they appear in the manuscript (the leaves have been left unbound to facilitate study of individual sections). The facsimile comes with a companion volume, The Ellesmere Chaucer: Essays in Interpretation, edited by Martin Stevens and Daniel Woodward. Notre Dame has copy 169 of this limited edition of 250.
