Rare Book & Manuscript Library Events

June 26, 2021 will mark the 125th anniversary of the publication of the Kelmscott Press’s The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, a landmark volume in the history of fine printing. The William Morris Society in the United States is organizing an international celebration to commemorate the occasion by asking all institutions holding copies of the Kelmscott Chaucer to participate in an online extravaganza. The RBML will be participating with a short video hosted by curators as well as sharing a series of downloadable coloring pages of selected images from the volume, which will be available on our homepage. More information on the general events can be found at http://www.morrissociety.org/.
