Geoffrey Chaucer, Canterbury Tales, University of Chicago Ms. 564.

Discovered by Manly and Rickert in the course of the Chaucer project, this mid-fifteenth-century codex is one of fifty-seven relatively complete manuscript copies of the Tales and one of only two containing a passage from the "Tale of Melibeus." It was given to the University Library in 1931 by Martin A. Ryerson.
