Two copies find new homes

Two copies of the Chaucer that we previously described have now found new academic homes:

(1) The Ward–Watkins–Slocum–Edison copy (Census 2.194), sold at Christie’s on 7 December 2012 [see here], is now in the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, University of Toronto, purchased from Peter Harrington.

(2) The Slater–Gribbel–Schimmel copy (Census 3.179), offered for sale by Heritage Bookshop in 2012 [see here], is now in the University of British Columbia Library, purchased for $202,000 after a two-year fund-raising effort.

We are grateful to Dr. Yuri Cowan for passing this information on to us.
