Caxton´s Canterbury Tales: The British Library Copies on CD-ROM (Individual Licence): Images and Text of British Library 167.C.26 (Ib.55009; The Royal
This CD-Rom contains the first ever full-colour facsimiles of these copies of William Caxton´s first and second editions of the Canterbury Tales, and the first electronic publication of any copy of the Caxton editions. These manuscripts are crucial both to the history of printing - the first edition, published in around 1476, is probably the first book ever printed in England - and in the history of Chaucer´s text (the second edition took readings from a now-lost manuscript which research suggests was the equal of any now surviving). Images of the text of each page may be compared directly, and a word-by-word collation of the two texts shows exactly how they differ.System RequirementsCD-ROM drive (6x or faster)800 x 600 screen size with 16 bit (thousands of colours) or better32MB free system memoryWindows 98 or laterMacOS X (10.1 or later).
