When The Seven Lamps of Architecture was published in 1849, in a society where new books on Gothic architecture sold like novels, it created an immediate sensation. The book was to found John Ruskin's reputation as Britain's foremost architectural critic. But there was some perplexity about what he had meant by what he had written - as well as rumours of hidden meanings. Some critics likened his writing style to the effects of incense or even narcotics, warning the weak-minded to beware lest they were swept away by his passages of 'purple prose'. These forty-five major English-language reviews, gathered for the first time into one volume by Robert Brownell, document the initial critical reaction to The Seven Lamps. They give a fascinating insight into contemporary thought, not only with regard to architecture, but also to religion, politics and social issues. This collection of reviews is an essential research tool for anyone interested in Victorian society and culture as well as architecture and Ruskin himself.

"More than simply a survey of an ancient city's most significant buildings, The Stones of Venice first published in three volumes between 1851 and 1853 is an expression of a philosophy of art, nature, and morality that goes beyond art history, and has inspired such thinkers as Leo Tolstoy, Marcel Proust, and Mahatma Gandhi. Volume III, which looks at Venetian buildings of the Early, Roman, and grotesque Renaissance, provides an analysis of the transitional forms of Arabian and Byzantine architecture while tracing the city s spiritual and architectural decline. Unabridged, and containing Ruskin s original drawings, this guide to the moral, spiritual, and aesthetic implications of architecture is a treasure for students and scholars alike. The preeminent art critic of his time, British writer JOHN RUSKIN (1819 1900) had a profound influence upon European painting, architecture, and aesthetics of the 19th and 20th centuries. His immense body of literary works include Modern Painters, Volume I IV (1843 1856); The Seven Lamps of Architecture (1849); Unto This Last (1862); Munera Pulveris (1862 3); The Crown of Wild Olive (1866); Time and Tide (1867); and Fors Clavigera (1871-84)."
