EARLY ENGLISH TEXT SOCIETY **

Early English Text Society Publications

EETS was founded in 1864 by Frederick James Furnivall, with the help of Richard Morris, Walter Skeat andothers, to bring the mass of unprinted Early English literature within the reach of students.

Without EETS editions, study of medieval English texts would hardly be possible.
