“What is better than wisdom? Woman. And what is better than a good woman? Nothing.” 

Geoffrey Chaucer.

 

“The Romaunt of the Rose”, is a partial translation into Middle English of the French allegorical poem, ‘le Roman de la Rose’ (le Roman). Originally believed to be the work of Chaucer, the Romaunt inspired controversy among 19th-century scholars when parts of the text were found to differ in style from Chaucer’s other works. The authorship question has been a topic of research and controversy. 

 

‘The Romaunt’ is the realization of a dream conversation with the god of love and faces the repenting of sins.

 

Number 215 of 500 copies printed on hand-made Aldwych paper, this fine example has 20 color plates and is bound in Vellum.
