Some images from The William Morris Kelmscott Chaucer, published originally by William Morris in 1896 at the Kelmscott Press in Hammersmith, London. I am scanning from the Omega press fac simile, which is not in colour (some of the original pages were in red and black), but I did not find good scans elsewhere online. The book was an important example of the Arts and Craft movement.
