Women } Provenance:-Marjorie Brown Douglas (1890-1947) a distant descendant of King Henry vii; m.1917 James Phayre de Hailes (1891-) a 2nd Lieutenant in 1914 WWI. John Ruskin (1819-1900) was hugely influential in the latter half of the 19th century and up to the First World War. After a period of relative decline, his reputation has steadily improved since the 1960s with the publication of numerous academic studies of his work. Today, his ideas and concerns are widely recognised as having anticipated interest in environmentalism, sustainability and craft. William Morris and C. R. Ashbee (of the Guild of Handicraft) were keen disciples, and through them Ruskin's legacy can be traced in the arts and crafts movement. A beautiful hand-made contemporary Arts and Crafts binding, by a world recognised bindery. Seller Inventory # 5076
