Takamiya MS 24 (“Devonshire”), fol. 1r, detail. On deposit in the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. Reproduced with the permission of Professor Toshiyuki Takamiya and the Beinecke Library.

This revised, updated, and corrected edition of Daniel W. Mosser’s A Digital Catalogue of the pre-1500 Manuscripts and Incunables of the Canterbury Tales contains descriptions of the eighty-four fifteenth-century manuscripts of the Canterbury Tales and of the individual copies of the four incunable editions. Accompanying articles discuss lost manuscripts and individual scribes.

This edition omits the hundreds of images published on the Scholarly Digital Editions’ 2010 publication on CD-ROM, making it possible to provide the Catalogue free of charge on the Web. Verse items are hyperlinked to records in the Digital Index of Middle English Verse and, where images are available for watermarks to the Thomas L. Gravell Watermark Archive.
