Kelmscott Chaucer Census

William Peterson and Sylvia Holton Peterson are conducting a census of the known copies of the Kelmscott Chaucer (1896), and have posted some information on their website about missing copies and "other unresolved problems." If you have any information for them, I encourage you to pass it along. Scholarly censuses of famous books like this are of immense importance to historians of print culture and the book.
