Full description for The Stones of Venice
'Thank God I am here, it is a Paradise of Cities,' Ruskin wrote on his second visit to Venice in 1841. John Ruskin, Victorian England's greatest writer on art and architecture, believed himself to be an adoptive son of Venice. His feelings for this beautiful, melancholy city, damaged by war and in danger of being restored beyond recognition, is nowhere better expressed than in The Stones of Venice. This abridged edition, which captures the essence of Ruskin's masterpiece, takes the reader on a marvellously descriptive and discursive tour of this glorious city.
