The story of 
Queen Anelida and the false Arcite: 

by 
Geoffrey Chaucer 



Printed at Westminster 

by William Caxton about the year 

H77 



Cambridge 

at the University Press 
1905 




This edition of ' The Story of Anelida ' was 
probably one of the first pieces printed by 
Caxton in England. The group of small 
quarto pamphlets to which it belongs are 
likely to have preceded such large works as 
the Canterbury Tales : and in this group the 
Anelida, the Temple of Brass and the Book 
of Courtesy may probably, on account of the 
narrowness of the page, be placed earlier than 
the others. 

The copy at Cambridge was formerly bound, 
with seven other tracts printed by Caxton, in a 
volume which came to the University Library 
in 1715 by the gift of King George the First, 
with the rest of the library formed by John 
Moore, Bishop of Ely. See W. Blades, The 
Biography and Typography of William Caxton 
(London, 1882, 8vo.), pp. 201, 202.
