First published in 1914, this volume contains the complete text of The Nonnë Prestes Tale. The Ellesmere manuscript is used as the main source, though elements of the Harleian version are also present. Consummately edited by Lilian Winstanley (1876–1960), the text also contains generous explanatory notes, a glossary of terms, together with a lengthy introduction which provides contextual information on the tale and a chronological overview of Chaucer's life. This book will remain of value to anyone with an interest in The Canterbury Tales or the history of Chaucerian criticism.
