Rare Chaucer Edition to be Sold

Another highlight of tomorrow's Duke's of Dorchester sale: an 1896 edition of Geoffrey Chaucer's works, produced by William Morris and illustrated by Sir Edward Burne-Jones. This copy - one of 48 made - is believed to be the personal copy of Burne-Jones. It's expected to fetch as much as £100,000.
