Item Description: Smith, Elder & Co., 1871. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Works Volume 1 - Three Lectures by John Ruskin: 1. Of Kings' Treasuries. 2. Of Queens Gardens. 3. Of The Mystery Of Life. John Ruskin (8 February 1819 – 20 January 1900) was the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, also an art patron, draughtsman, watercolourist, a prominent social thinker and philanthropist. He wrote on subjects ranging from geology to architecture, myth to ornithology, literature to education, and botany to political economy. He was hugely influential in the latter half of the 19th century up to the First World War. After a period of relative decline, his reputation has steadily improved since the 1960s with the publication of numerous academic studies of his work. Today, his ideas and concerns are widely recognised as having anticipated interest in environmentalism, sustainability and craft. Ex-library stock with all the usual stamps and markings. Leather bound in blue with gold gilt on the spine and edges of the pages. The cover and spine have significant wear around the edges and corners but no major damage. The first couple of pages have some light staining, but other than that, the pages are all in good condition and the binding is intact. Bookseller Inventory # 1313C

Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: . WRITTEN AMONG THE BASSES ALPS. [IT is not among mountain scenery that human intellect usually takea its finest temper, or receives its highest development; but it is at least there that we find a consistent energy of mind and body, compelled by severer character of agencies to be resisted and hardships to be endured; and it is there that we must seek for the last remnants of patriarchal simplicity and patriotic affection--the few rock fragments of manly character that are yet free from the lichenous stain of over-civilization. It must always, therefore, be with peculiar pain that we find, as in the district to which the following verses allude, the snvageuess and seclusion of mountain life, without its force and faithfulness; and all the indolence and sensuality of the most debased cities of Europe, without the polish to disguise, the temptation to excuse, or the softness of nat ural scenery to harmonize with them.] Why stand ye here all the day idle Have you in heaven no hope--on earth no care-- No foe in hell--ye things of stye and stall, That congregate like flies, and make the air Rank with your fevered sloth--that hourly caD The sun, which should your servant be, to bear Dread witness on you, with uncounted wane And unregarded rays, from peak to peak Of piny-gnomoued mountain moved in vain? Behold, the very shadows that ye seek For slumber, write along the wasted wall Your condemnation. They forget not, they, Their ordered function and determined fall, Nor useless perish. But you count your day By sins, and write your difference from clay In bonds you break and laws you disobey. God! who hast given the rocks their fortitude, The sap unto the forests, and their food And vigor to the busy tenantry Of happy soulless things. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781230274409
