Excerpt from Ruskin on Pictures, Vol. 1: A Collection of Criticisms by John Ruskin Not Heretofore Re-Printed and Now Re-Edited and Re-Arranged Many of Mr. Ruskin's scattered pamphlets and other occasional writings have already been collected in the three volumes published in 1885 under the title "On the Old Road." His letters to the Public Press have similarly been collected in the two volumes of "Arrows of the Chace" (1880). His Catalogues and other Notes on Modem Pictures have not hitherto been collected. This is the work undertaken in the present volumes. The first volume is devoted to Turner; the second to Prout, William Hunt, and "Academy Notes." The present volume, dealing with Turner, is divided into three sections, of which the first two contain Notes by Mr. Ruskin on the works by Turner in the National Gallery. The third section consists of a reprint of "Notes by Mr. Ruskin on his Drawings by Turner, and on his own Handiwork illustrative of Turner." In the first two sections, dealing with Turner at the National Gallery, Mr. Ruskin's Notes in four different catalogues are included. Of these, one was only printed for private circulation, and two have been out of print for more than forty years. The object aimed at in the arrangement of this volume is to make it available, among other purposes, for use in the Gallery itself. This object has governed the manner in which the text of Mr. Ruskin's catalogues has been treated. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
