The Date of Chaucer's Troilus free pdf Excerpt from The Date of Chaucer's Troilus: And Other and Chaucey Matters To do honour to Chaucer, and to let the lovers and students of him see how far the best unprinted Manuscripts of his works differd from the printed text, his Society was founded in 1868. There were then, and are still, many questions of metre, pronunciation, orthography, and etymology yet to be settled, for which more prints of Manuscripts were and are wanted- and it is hardly too much to say that every line of Chaucer contains points that need reconsideration. The founder (Dr Furnivall) began with The Canterbury Tales, and has given of them (in parallel columns in Royal 4to) six of the best theretofore unprinted Manuscripts known. Inasmuch as the parallel arrangement necessitated the alteration of the places of certain tales in some of the MSS, a print of each MS has been issued separately, following the order of its original. The first six MSS printed have been: the Ellesmere (by leave of the Earl of Ellesmere)- the Hengwrt (by leave of W. W. E. Wynne, Esq.)- the Camb. Univ. Libr., MS Gg. 4. 27- the Corpus, Oxford- the Petworth (by leave of Lord Leconfield)- and the Lansdowne 851 (Brit. Mus.). The Harleian 7334 has followd, and the Cambridge Dd., completed by Egerton 2726 (the Haistwell MS.) Specimens of all accessible MSS of the Tales are now nearly completed, edited by the Prof. Zupitza, Ph.D., and Prof. John Koch, Ph.D. Lady Cardigan will not allow her MS to be seen. Of Chaucer's Minor Poems, - the MSS of which are generally later than the best MSS of the Canterbury Tales, - all the available MSS have been printed, so as to secure all the existing evidence for the true text. Of Troilus, Parallel-Texts from the 6 best MSS have been issued (the Campsall MS also separately), and a 7th MS text of it with the englisht Boccaccio Comparison. Autotypes of most of the best Chaucer MSS have been publisht. Dr. E. Fl gel is editing the Chaucer Concordance. The Society's publications are issued in two Series, of which the first contains the different texts of Chaucer's works- and the Second, such originals of and essays on these as can be procured, with other illustrative treatise, and Supplementary Tales. The yearly subscription, which constitutes Membership. Is 2 guineas, due on every 1st January beginning with Jan. 1, 1868. More Members arewanted. All Society's Publication can still be had. The Society's Hon. Sec. for America are, Prof. Kittredge, of Harvard College, Cambridge, Mass., for the North and East, and Prof. Bright, of Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, for the South and West. Member's names and subscriptions should be sent to the home Hon. Sec., W. A. Dalziel, Esq., 67, Victoria Road, Finsbury Park, London, N. First Series. The Society's issue for 1868, in the First Series, is, I. The Prologue and Knight's Tale, of the Canterbury Tales, in 6 parallel Texts (from the 6 MSS named below), together with Tables, showing the Groups of the Tales, and their varying order in 38 MSS of the Tales, and in 5 old printed editions, and also Specimens from several MSS of the "Moveable Prologue" of the Canterbury Tales, - Shipman's Prologue, and Franklin's Prolo gue, - when moved from their right places, and of the Substitutes for them.
