Description 

Geoffrey Chaucer created this book in 1387. At that time, religion was the most important thing for European people. So it was very popular to go on pilgrimages. It means traveling to famous Christian cities to be near to God.

 

A group of people went on a pilgrimage to Canterbury, a town in England. Their aim was Canterbury Cathedral. At the beginning of their journey, one group member suggested a game to entertain everybody.

All of them had to tell one story. The best story would win a prize at the end of the journey. Everyone had something he wanted to share.  

This book is part of the Easton Press 100 Greatest Books Ever Written.

This Series has initially been 100 books, but the Easton Press added 25 titles throughout the years. So there are a total of 125 titles after all.

The Canterbury Tales is an excellent addition to your vintage Geoffery Chaucer collection or home library.

What is vintage sustainability?

Buying vintage anything is essential because recycling and reusing items means fewer polluting resources are being used to make brand new books, kitchen items, bookends, and more.

Approximately 640,000 tons of books are deposited in the landfill annually at an average weight of 4 pounds each. This averages out to about 320 million books discarded each year that are not recycled. Wow!

As avid readers become more conscious of the environmental consequence of disposable books, we are looking for a more sustainable way to shop.

Could buying vintage be the answer? Absolutely!

Our vintage books are authentic, sustainable, and unique. So make a difference - your way. 

All of my vintage books are sourced from personal collections found in estate sales.

When you shop with Reading Vintage, you are saving a book from the landfill.

Sustainability is the future.

I'm passionate about preserving our past and passionate about the power of books to tell stories.

Because my goal at Reading Vintage is to connect readers to books, I hope to save these books from the landfill. 

I'm proud to offer these books that are gently used. For anyone interested in the environment, browse our online shelves so you can find the titles you love in a way that's more environmentally friendly. 

Happy Reading,
