About this Item

First edition, the LIMITED Large Paper Issue, one of only 250 copies printed on handmade paper. Illustrated with 12 fine plates, 10 of which are beautiful photo-lithographic reproductions of drawings by the author, one of which is tinted. 4to, original three quarter vellum over green cloth covered boards, the upper cover lettered in gilt, gilt scolloping to the vellum along the backing and corner-pieces, the spine gilt lettered and with gilt scolloping at the head and tail, edges untrimmed. xvi, [4], 168pp. A lovely copy, the vellum mellowed a bit as vellum is prone but the binding unworn, solid and most attractive, the text very fine with very minor spotting to some of the plates, ironically this seems to have been caused by the protective tissue guards. FIRST EDITION AND A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTION, THIS ISSUE LIMITED TO ONLY 250 COPIES. The town of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Ruskin was the leading art critic of his day, as well as being an important patron, draughtsman, watercolourist, and prominent social thinker and philanthropist. This work contains five of his lectures, being: Verona, and its rivers; The story of Arachne; The tortoise of Aegina; Candida Casa; Mending the Sieve. It also contains an addenda to 'Mending the Sieve' - on the foundation of Cluny, an appendix to Candida Casa and an index. Bookseller Inventory # 26027
