Description

Excerpt from Homes and Haunts of John Ruskin Miss Emily Warren, the author of the drawings in this book, had, when a very young girl, written to Ruskin for advice. He never refused either advice or help to anyone who was sincere in seeking it, and seemed likely to profit by it. He saw promise in Miss Warren's drawings; he gave her lessons, encouragement, commissions. After his death, she conceived the idea of making an artistic pilgrimage in Ruskin's footsteps to the places where he lived or which he loved. She carried out her plan as opportunity offered during several years, and has drawn for exhibition a large collection of views of Ruskin's Homes and Haunts. A selection of these views was made for reproduction, and I was asked by the publishers to supply some letterpress, illustrative of the drawings. This task I undertook, upon the completion of more arduous labours in connexion with Ruskin's life and work. To admirers of Ruskin Miss Warren's thought will seem as happy as it is pious. We visit the place where a great man was born or where he died; but, as a French writer upon Ruskin has asked, does not a great man inhabit even more the places which he admired, and why should we not make pilgrimage to them also? "More sweet than odours caught by him who sailsNear spicy shores of Araby the blest, A thousand times more exquisitely sweet, The freight of holy feeling which we meet, In thoughtful moments, wafted by the galesFrom fields where good men walk, or bowers wherein they rest."
