Grinnell College Library copy

The copy of the Chaucer once owned by the Salisbury House Foundation, Des Moines, Iowa (Census 2.212) has been purchased by Grinnell College Library.

Mark Samuels Lasner recently sent us a copy of a letter from Philip C. Duschnes to Carl Weeks (a former owner), 6 August, 1954, indicating that Weeks paid $1,600 for it — though Duschnes allowed him $650 credit for returning another copy that Weeks had purchased from Duschnes earlier. The more expensive copy that Weeks purchased (on 3 November 1944) had a Doves binding and four pasted-in signatures (including Morris and Burne-Jones).
