Ruskin RelicseBook - 1904
Just from a glance at the dazzling array of subjects on which John Ruskin wrote, it is clear that he was a man of numerous interests. In this 1904 volume, University of Reading professor and notable Ruskin scholar William Gershom Collingwood provides a fascinating look at some of Ruskin's most cherished pastimes and interests. While delving into everything from Ruskin's favorite music to "Jumping Jenny" (his favorite boat on the lake adjoining his Brantwood estate), Collingwood provides a uniquely personal glimpse at the celebrated 19th-century art critic and social thinker.
