A very good book, giving an insight into the way John Ruskin viewed his life and his surroundings. It is rather tedious in parts; nevertheless it is a rare commodity these days to find such a write who, I feel, writes in this way.

I bought this book as a first foray into Ruskin and I think that it is perfectly suited to that, but perhaps not much else. The selection provides a reasonable spread of subjects that covers and gives an introduction to Ruskin's developing interests, but I found that these were a little too scant for my own reading. While this is always going to be the nature of a volume such as this, it is a useful gateway into reading Ruskin proper as it provides the reader with an adequate feel for the respective texts from which these selections have been culled. With this in mind, I have been able to pick up further books by Ruskin thanks to the information provided by this edition. My main reservation is with the notes as they tend towards superfluity in areas that I felt required little elucidation, whilst passing over others that could have been glossed.

As a fan of John Ruskin I was pleased to find a copy of this at a recent exhibition at the wonderful Turner Gallery at Margate. Just couldn'tget hold of my own copy fast enough. It a readers delight.. If you have an interest in art some wonderful snippets from "Modern painters" and many writing I had not come across before

5.0 out of 5 stars Ruskiniana 21 Dec. 2010
By toronto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In spite of all the efforts of many people, Ruskin is still underrecognized (needs a blockbuster movie, I guess). This volume, like many others, is a judicious selection from his vast corpus. It is probably the best on the market. I have a longstanding fondness for the Kenneth Clark selection (which used to be in Penguin, and before that at Phaedon), but this will do.
