Proserpina and Love’s Meinie

Volume 25 of the Library Edition is now online! 

 Proserpina is subtitled  ‘studies of wayside flowers, while the air was yet pure among the Alps and in the… Scotland and England which my father knew’;  Love’s Meinie is ‘lectures on Greek and English Birds’.   Both include many line drawings and plenty of plates made from Ruskin’s drawings.   The  frontispiece is a drawing of Brantwood garden by Arthur Severn.
