"New" edition of Chaucer's poems discovered

A professor in New Zealand has discovered a previously unknown edition of Chaucer's poems. The book was published in 1807 and distinguishes between poems correctly and incorrectly attributed to Chaucer. This is the earliest known edition to make such a distinction.

The professor hopes this discovery will contribute both to knowledge of Chaucer and to understanding the extent of 19th century scholasticism of  his works.
