He changed Victorian perceptions of art, and was the main influence behind Gothic revival architecture.

As a social critic, he argued for the improvement of the condition of the poor, and against the increasing mechanisation of work in factories, which he believed was dull and soul-destroying. The thirty-nine volumes of the Library Edition of his works, published between 1903 and 1912, are themselves a remarkable achievement, in which his books and essays - almost all highly illustrated - are given a biographical and critical context in extended introductory essays and in the Minor Ruskiniana - extracts from letters, articles and reminiscences both by and about Ruskin.

This twelfth volume contains Ruskins lectures on architecture and painting.
