1 edition published in 1892 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In its indictment of meaningless modern labour and its celebration of medieval architecture, The Nature of Gothic could be called the foundation stone of Morris's aesthetic and purpose in life. Forty years after he first read it, Morris chose Ruskin's test for one of the first books to be published at his Kelmscott Press, using his own Golden type ... The Kelmscott Nature of Gothic encapsulates the meeting of two remarkable minds and embodies their influence on word, image and design"--P. [4] of cover
