John Ruskin
Edited by Francis O'Gorman

  • One of the most important and influential men of his day, in his autobiography Ruskin covers many of the topics in which he was pre-eminent: art, architecture, J. M. W. Turner, nature, politics, travel, with a fascinating account of his childhood and intellectual development.
  • Includes passages excised from the first printed editions.
