The Wife of Bath's Prologue on CD-ROM inaugurates a revolutionary new kind of 'book' and offers the first ever genuinely comprehensive record of the Chaucerian text. This electronic textual edition of a major work of literature contains a full record of all the original sources for the work, with sophisticated search software and scholarly apparatus. The CD-ROM presents transcriptions, collations, and some 1,200 digitized images of all 58 pre-1500 manuscript and print versions of Chaucer's Wife of Bath's Prologue - an important section of The Canterbury Tales. An advanced hypertext presentation system enables the user to locate the transcript of a particular line in a particular manuscript, the collation of a particular word, or the image of that line or word in a manuscript, with the greatest of ease. This is the first release in Cambridge's Canterbury Tales on CD-ROM series, a significant innovation in textual bibliography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Chaucer's Wife of Bath Prologue, Cambridge University Press's CD-ROM is an impressive work of scholarship, presenting transcription and facsimiles of all 58 manuscript witnesses to the text. The crucial feature of this CD-ROM is that it was a project conceived for the computer. It is hardly credible to think that any book-publisher would consider presenting multiple copies of what is substantially the same text but the ability of CD-ROM to present this information in an accessible format is a huge scholaraly advantage.' Bulletin of the Society for Renaissance Studies
'Cambridge University Press has produced a chest of treasures, reminding us that for some institutions scholarship is still something to be valued rather than priced.' The Observer
"The CD-ROM is largely intuitive....Easy to use search options....Highly recommended..." A.F. Erlebach, Choice
