Unto This Last

John Ruskin     1st Edition       May 1862

An essay and book on economy by John Ruskin, first published between August and December 1860 in the monthly journal Cornhill Magazine in four articles.

Ruskin said himself that the articles were “very violently criticized”, forcing the publisher to stop its publication after four months. Subscribers sent protest letters, but Ruskin countered the attack and published the four articles in this book in May 1862.

The book greatly influenced the nonviolent activist Mohandas Gandhi.

In near excellent condition with light foxing on early pages only.


Some of these books are very rare and collectable but we have no way of displaying them, most require some restoration and again we have no way to cover that expenditure.

We have decided to sell them to raise money to restore the artwork, if you are interested in buying any particular book please CONTACT US to express your interest without any commitment.

We will be happy to sort something out or put the book up for auction if we believe it has significant value.
