The King of the Golden River

£9.99

Product description

This story was originally written in 1841, 'at the request of a young lady, and solely for her amusement, without any idea of publication'. First suggestions of publication were made in 1851. In this edition the story is reproduced in its original and unaltered form, with the addition of a glossary which, it is hoped, will help younger readers to understand Ruskin's magnificent language. The superb illustrations are the work of Charles Stewart who has captured the spirit and feelings of the mountains and waterfalls, of misty sunsets and quiet green valleys which Ruskin describes so admirably.
Published in 1958, the book is in good condition for it's age. The DJ has been covered in a protective plastic cover but is scuffed with small piece missing off the back page. There is foxing to the hardback cover. The pages are clean and the binding good. First edition.
