1002 Ruskin, John The Nature of Gothic: A Chapter of the Stones of Venice
London George Allen 1892 Vellum Good 
Octavo (20 cm), pp. iv, 127, (1). Stiff white vellum boards with gilt stamped titling and date on spine. Silk ties, pages untrimmed. One of 500 copies printed by William Morris at Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith. Woodcut border on p. 1, with woodcut letters throughout, and printer's device on p. iv and colophon page. Morris wrote the preface to what was originally published as part of Ruskin's 1853 Stones of Venice series. Boards are warped and stained, one silk tie has come off (though is still present, laid in). Moisture exposure has stained lower board and marked upper edge of about half the leaves; also brown stain at bottom of colophon page and lower board. Pages are nonethless clean and bright, binding is tight. Ruskin authority Peter Anthony writes that "'The nature of gothic’, represents the fusion of Ruskin's aesthetic and social concern; just as neither element is separable from the other throughout his work, both are present in this chapter. Ruskin came to describe it as the most important in the whole book, as ‘the creed, if it be not the origin, of a new industrial school of thought’. .... Its most famous and influential separate publication was by William Morris with his own introduction at the Kelmscott Press in 1892." (From John Ruskin's Labour (pp. 45-71), Cambridge University Press). Cook and Wedderburn, Vol 10: LXIX-LXX.
