"Among the books which afford us an insight into the popular religious thought of the middle ages, none holds a more important place than the Legenda Aurea or Golden Legend. The book was compiled and put into form about the year 1275 by Jacobus de Voragine, Archbishop of Genoa, who laid under contribution for his purpose the Lives of the Fathers by S. Jerome, the Ecclesiastical History of Eusebius, and other books of a like kind; while for the lives of the saints more nearly approaching his own age he appears to have industriously collected such legends as he could meet with, whether in manuscript or handed down by oral tradition."--Prologue

On this site you will find William Caxton's two editions of Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, probably printed in 1476 and 1483, the originals of which are both in the British Library. This site is part of the British Library's impressive Treasures in Full series. In the Texts section you can view the first or the second editions separately, or you can compare them. If you chose to see one edition at a time, you will get two pages on the screen, the way you would if you had the book open in front of you. But to read them you may have to enlarge the image by clicking on it or using the enlarge icon. In the Background section you can find information on Caxton's life and about how he became involved with printing. You can find links to some web resources on Chaucer and the Canterbury Tales in our Links section and further reading in References. You can also view a Timeline
