How it works


xxvi, 406 p.; 601 illustrations, chronology, glossary, bibliography, & index. A monograph resulting from the authors' finding at auction in 2006 a box of long-lost daguerreotypes by Ruskin, the art-critic and writer, depicting scenes in France, Switzerland, and Italy, particularly Venice: the book includes a fully illustrated catalogue raisonné of the 325 known daguerreotypes by Ruskin, along with a description of the technical procedure used by Ruskin, and a study of Ruskin's photographic work. Compelling study, with rich imagery.
