Description
The Summoner - who appears to be delivering a summons from an ecclesiastical court - a character in "The Canterbury Tales", a collection of stories written by Geoffrey Chaucer at the end of the 14th century and 'told' by a group of pilgrims on their way to the shrine of St Thomas à Becket at Canterbury Cathedral, Kent. This series of illustrations is from "Chaucer's Canterbury Tales", edited by John Saunders, publ. J.M. Dent & Co, 1889, and are based on those in the Ellesmere Manuscript. (Now in the public domain.) The Summoner would not be a popular person and even his horse looks sly!
