The undertaking was announced to Kelmscott Press subscribers in December 1892, although the actual printing of the book did not begin until August 1894, and was finally issued to subscribers in June 1896. Though earlier Kelmscott Press books were lavishly illustrated, the Kelmscott Press Chaucer is noteworthy for being the only book where the images and text were fully integrated. A splendid culminating effort of the Kelmscott Press, and of the Victorian rediscovery of early English literature.
