Copy now in the Victoria and Albert Museum

A copy of the Chaucer (Census 2.190) once owned by Clarence Dillon and later in the possession of Paul Chrzanowski (Livermore, California), has returned to England. Through the generosity of  Mr. Chrzanowski, it was donated in 2016 to the American Friends of the Victoria and Albert Museum, and in 2020 it became a part of the permanent collection of the National Art Library at the V & A.

While the book was still in California, it was rebound by Dominic Riley (see this earlier post on our blog).

In 2009 Mr. Chrzanowski gave his substantial collection of early English books to the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, UCLA.
