  6. I Materials for the Study of Chaucer’s Works
    (pp. 1-98)

    Part I of this bibliography has five major sections. They provide guidance in approaching Chaucer’s work taken as a whole.

Some specialized studies are also included in subjects such as astronomy, where Chaucer had special interest and knowledge. Where several titles might have been chosen, preference has been given to recent work in order to provide relatively current information about the bibliography in the subject covered.
