London: Macmillan, 1903.

Hardcover. Very Good- with no dust jacket. Item #13176

Cloth soil, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "My own interest in Chaucer is not linguistic, but literary and historical. I have, therefore, given (in addition to a full glossary) what I hope will be found (to repeat the phrase) a useful minimum of information as to Chaucer's grammar, and have devoted myself chiefly to annotating the Prologue, more especially those of its allusions which touch on English life in the 14th century. For understanding this life the Prologue is by far the most valuable document that has come down to us." - Preface. Edited by Alfred W Pollard, noted turn-of-the-century British bibliographer and English literature scholar. ; Macmillan's English Classics; lxxiv, 116, 2 ad pages.
