Worthy of Completists

Before the holidays I began a series of posting Warwick Goble illustrations from a beautiful 1912 edition of The Complete Poetical Works of Geoffrey Chaucer. Here are five more of the illustrations, not the best of the book, but worthy of completists, as I'm showing them in the order they appear as you would read the works.

The best are yet to come.

Virginius and Virginia

The Three Revelers and the Gold

The Knight and the Old Woman

The Knight and the Old Woman at Court

Griselda and the Duke
