Visualizing Chaucer: A Robbins Library Digital Project

This Robbins Library Digital Project seeks to capture postmedieval illustrated versions of Chaucer’s work. The project provides annotations for books containing illustrated versions of Chaucer’s writings and organizes these images by character/work for easy accessibility. Our intention is to make these images readily accessible, where copyright allows, for teachers, students, and scholars interested in the afterlife of Chaucer’s works.

Harley MS 4866 (British Library): This manuscript contains Thomas Hoccleve’s Regement of Princes, including a portrait of Chaucer pointing to a stanza that memorializes him (fol. 88r).
