Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a very good set of two hardcovers with accompanying slipcase. 1956 The Folio Society. NOTE: inside front cover of both hardcovers is previous owners bookplate w name neatly marked out (see photo). Otherwise both of the hardcovers are very good inside and out. The pages are still crisp and clean with no other markings seen. The bindings are tight and straight. Tan cloth hardcover boards w brown quarter trim are also very good with barely a hint of shelf wear. The accompanying slipcase is very good, also with only a hint of shelf wear. Crown octavo book size, slightly smaller size or 5" x 9" with 288 pages Volume One and 304 pages Volume Two including notes.

The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer is a collection of 24 stories. The tales are written in verse with a few written in prose. The tales are part of a story-telling contest by pilgrims traveling together from London to Canterbury. This edition from The Folio Society features woodcut illustrations by Edna Whyte and illustrated endpapers front and back.
