The sumptuous and sought-after Library Edition of Ruskin's works, presenting the full range of his literary, artistic, and philosophic genius, superbly printed on fine paper, in the desirable full morocco binding. Includes all of his known works with many letters and previously unpublished material up to that date and forms a tremendous record of the achievement of one of Britain's foremost art critics who was also an accomplished artist in his own right as well as being an important patron, philanthropist and social thinker.

Spines lightly sunned, most volumes with minor chipping to leather at spines and edges; occasional volume with minor toning or foxing on leaves at front or rear, a few volumes with decorative bookplates; interiors otherwise clean and bright; overall near fine.
