John Ruskin was one of the most influential men of his day, and Praeterita, his autobiography, offers fascinating insights into many of the topics in which he was pre-eminent: art, architecture, J. M. W. Turner, nature, politics, and travel. This is the first major new edition since 1908, including passages excised from the original printed editions. The Introduction sets the autobiography in the context of Ruskin's life at the time of writing and discusses its fractured nature and unique style. Thorough explanatory notes illuminate the many references and allusions and the Glossary of Persons Mentioned provides a gazetteer of Ruskin's social and intellectual circle.
