Written in the 1880s, this autobiography of one of Britain's most famous art critics of the 19th century describes his upbringing in a respectable Victorian household, his Continental travels, his friends and relations and the development and refinement of his aesthetic tastes. An introduction by Kenneth Clark sets "Praeterita" in its proper context and draws attention to its particular merits. Also included in this work are Ruskin's supplement of letters, diary notes and extracts from literature, and a glossary identifying many of the people named in the book.
