Theme notes...

...If you are fair to see, in folks' presence, Show them your face and with your clothes regale; If you are foul, be lavish of expense, To gain friends never cease to do travail; Be lightsome as a linden leaf in wind, And let him worry, weep and wring and wail!

~L'envoy de Chaucer, The Clerk's Tale

The British Library's
Caxton's Chaucer
