An etymological dictionary of the English language by Walter W Skeat( Book )
108 editions published between 1822 and 2010 in English and held by 1,876 libraries worldwide
Practical and reliable, this well-known reference traces English words back to their Indo-European roots. Each entry features a brief definition, identifies the actual or probable language of origin, and employs a few quotations that indicate usage and the period at which the word entered into English parlance. Numerous cross-references enable readers to collect all the forms of any given term, and extensive editorial apparatus includes lists of prefixes, suffixes, Indo-European roots, homonyms and doublets, and the distribution of English-language sources. Useful not only to students of comparative philology and early English, this volume will intrigue everyone with an interest in the origin, history, and development of the English language.--Publisher's description

78 editions published between 1879 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,678 libraries worldwide
On a spring day in April--sometime in the waning years of the 14th century--29 travelers set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Saint Thomas Beckett. Among them is a knight, a monk, a prioress, a plowman, a miller, a merchant, a clerk, and an oft-widowed wife from Bath. Travel is arduous and wearing; to maintain their spirits, this band of pilgrims entertains each other with a series of tall tales that span the spectrum of literary genres. Five hundred years later, people are still reading Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. If you haven't yet made the acquaintance of the Franklin, the Pardoner, or the Squire because you never learned Middle English, take heart: this edition of the Tales has been translated into modern idiom
