THE BIBLIOGRAPHY
OF RUSKIN



LETTER FROM MR. RUSKIN.

THE Compiler of this Bibliography has had the honour to re-
ceive, in acknowledgment of a copy which he sent to Brant-
wood, the following letter from Mr. RUSKIN :

" BRANTWOOD, CONISTOK, LANCASHIRE,
30th Sept., '78.

MY DEAR SIR,

*

So far from being distasteful to me, your perfect reck-
oning up of me not only natters my vanity extremely, but will
be in the highest degree useful to myself. But you know so
much more about me than I now remember about anything,
that I can't find a single thing to correct or add glancing
through at least.

I will not say you have wasted your time ; but I may at
least regret the quantity of trouble the book must have given
you, and am, therefore, somewhat ashamedly, but very grate-
fully yours,

(Signed) J. RUSKIN.

INTRODUCTION".



SIMPLE and easy as a List like the present may seem when
finished and in the reader's hands, the materials for its compila-
tion have taken many years to collect, and much anxious labour
has been spent on its preparation and arrangement. No entry
has in any case been made at second-hand ; but always with
the actual book, pamphlet, magazine, or journal described
lying before the compiler. The order adopted is mainly chro-
nological.

It is hardly to be hoped or expected that in the earliest
draught of so extensive an undertaking no single lacuna will
occur ; and, indeed, the Editor has little doubt that several
letters to the public journals not enumerated here will yield
themselves to more fortunate or more persistent research.

In the meantime he begs to tender his best thanks to those
kind friends and correspondents who have furnished him with
many valuable additional items which have served to make the
Bibliography if not complete or exhaustive, a far nearer ap-
proach to completeness than it could otherwise have been.
Among these he would more especially name Robert Somer-
vell, Esq., of Hazelthwaite, Windermere ; Peter Bayne, Esq.;
Henry T. Wharton, Esq. ; Charles Welford, Esq. ; J. II. Cham-
berlain, Esq., of Birmingham ; Charles W. Button, Esq., of
the Manchester Public Free Libraries ; Fred. W. Foster, Esq.,
of Chelsea ; T. G. Ashton, Esq. ; Mr. George Allen, of Orping-

THE Two PATHS : being Lectures on Art, and its application
to Decoration and Manufacture, delivered in 1859 60. By
John Euskin, M. A. With two Plates, pp. x. 271. Lon-
don : Smith, Elder & Co., 1859.

A few introductory words to the Inaugural Lecture, at the Kensington
Museum, 1858 (not given in this volume), may be found, "not much mis-
reported," in The Building Chronicle of January, 1858.

New Edition (forming volume X. of the Collected Works of John Eus-
kin), with new Preface, dated "Brantwood, 21st January, 1878," pp. xii.
232. George Allen, Sunnysidc, Orpington, Kent, 1878.

In the new Preface the author says: "I have no time nor sight now
for the revision of old plates ; and besides I own to a very enjoyable pride
in making the first editions of my books valuable to their possessors, who
found out, before other people, that these writings and drawings really were
good for something. I have retained, therefore, in this edition only the
woodcuts necessary for the explanation of the text; and the two lovely en-
gravings by Messrs Cuff and Armytage will, I hope, render the old volume
more or less classical among collectors. The few references to them are
withdrawn from the present edition."
