Additional Information:
This volume features four full-page woodcuts by Gill along with many smaller woodcuts that serve as marginal illuminations.  The marginal illustrations are marked by the same curved lines, with figures fitted into and around the curves much like the those featured on the title page.  The four full-page illustrations depict Troilus meeting Criseyde; Criseyde being brought to the bedridden Troilus; Criseyde leaving Troy; and Troilus's death.  The strong vertical lines depicting the drape of clothing are particularly notable in these illustrations.
