British Library Caxtons Online

The British Library Caxtons Online provides an early printed edition of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, with commentary and transcription. The image resolution and quality of scholarship is excellent.

The De Montfort University at Leicester has hosted and produced this manuscript digitalisation and is working on several others presently in co-operation with the British Library. If you are interested in the study of manuscript digitalisation, you might want to check out their podcast, which contains a discussion of the subject by scholars.
