No greater tribute to the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages, Geoffrey Chaucer, could be paid than to give his works the finest possible form. The Kelmscott Chaucer was widely hailed as a masterpiece when it appeared on June 16, 1896, and rapidly sold out. It is not the least of the abiding results of Morriss life and work to set the standard by which the quality of book production is measured. Still more important is the respect due to a great book, and if all the Kelmscott Chaucers, scattered about the world, have a purpose today it is to encourage such respect. Worldly wisdom may require most of them to be preserved from the hands that Morris would have wished to turn their pages; that they can now do so in electronic form is surely a fate that he would have applauded.
