What Our Customers Say...

Description

Leather Binding, Signed Binding

A delightful edition of this work, in a signed Riviere half vellum binding.

First published in 1865, this collection of three lectures from Victorian era writer, philosopher, art critic and polymath John Ruskin are essentially concerned with education and ideal conduct.

Delivered in December 1864 at the town halls at Rusholme and Manchester, the lectures featured are titled 'Of Kings' Treasuries', 'Of Queens' Gardens' and 'The Mystery of Life and its Arts'.

This book proved to be one of Ruskin's most popular, and was regularly awarded as a Sunday School prize.

With a contemporary inscription to the front free endpaper.

Condition

In a signed half vellum binding, with cloth covered boards. Minor loss to calf spine label. Light marks to vellum. Binder's stamp to verso of front free endpaper. Contemporary inscription to front endpaper. Internally, a little tightly bound. Pages clean and bright.
