Description:
176pp, goldenrod end papers. No dustjacket. B&W photos and images of manuscripts. SIGNED by George Arthur Plimpton, (grandfather of American journalist George Plimpton) and inscribed and dated: "To Dr. and Mrs. Seth Milliken with the high regard of the author, Geo. A Plimpton 1936." Seth Minot Milliken [1875-1957] was a surgeon and civic leader. From the Introduction: "The success of my book on The Education of Shakespear has encouraged me to attempt a similar work on The Education of Chaucer. As in the earlier volume, the material I use is based entirely on manuscripts in my own library. Although some of these are not exactly contemporary with Chaucer, each is illustrative of the works used in his time. " Fascinating insight into Chaucer's education and that of scholars in the Fourteenth century. Only signed copy online.
