Review

This volume, containing descriptions of "manuscripts and early printed books from libraries in and near Philadelphia illustrating Chaucer's sources, his works and their influence," is the catalog of the exhibition held as the Arthur Ross Gallery and the Rosenbach Museum and Library concurrently with the fifth International Congress of the New Chaucer Society. Pages 99-103 describe two parchment manuscripts of the Confessio Amantis, Rosenbach MS. f 1083/29 (ca. 1450) and the Taylor MS (no number) owned by Princeton Universiy Library (ca. 1400-1450). A portrait of Gower from the Rosenbach MS and an example of the hand of the so-called "Scribe D" from the Taylor MS are reproduced as well. [PN. Copyright the John Gower Society. JGN 5.2]
