LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Harper Collins, London - first UK edition ISBN:00021516669, 1991. hardcover, 6¼" x 9½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc.VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Seventeen b&w photographs, notes, and index. Wolfgang Kemp's new biography - the first properly conceptual biography of its subject - at last makes sense of what Ruskin was saying. With perception and lucidity, and largely by allowing Ruskin to speak for himself, Kemp demonstrates how Ruskin's whole life was founded on his early visits to the Continent with his parents, and on theories of nature which he worked out there. From those he derived his beliefs about art, beauty, craftsmanship, philosophy of work, and the social order.
