Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all fairs in April and May. The Edinburgh Premier Fair and the UK Fine Press Book Fair have been rescheduled for November. The Oxford Premier has also been rescheduled for October. Keep checking our website for updates.

First Quarto Edition (13.75 by 11 inches), with a portrait frontispiece after Phillips, etched title page, and 11 plates engraved by Luigi Schiavonetti after Blake's designs. Includes the dedication to the Queen, List of Subscribers, and four page prospectus for ‘The Procession of Chaucer’s Pilgrims to Canterbury’ by Thomas Stothard to the rear. Half morocco with spine titled in gilt. Very good plus. Some foxing to frontispiece and engraved title page; also foxing to the margins of plates, although not impinging on the actual images.
