The nature of Gothic : a chapter of the Stones of Venice by John Ruskin( Book )
7 editions published between 1892 and 2011 in English and held by 178 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

News from nowhere, or, An epoch of rest being some chapters from a utopian romance by William Morris( Book )
5 editions published between 1892 and 1893 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"News from Nowhere (1890) is the most famous work of one of the greatest British writers and thinkers, William Morris. It is a utopian picture of a future communist society, drawing on the work of Ruskin and Marx and written in response to what Morris saw as soulless and mechanical visions of socialism. In this work of his last years, Morris distilled many of his leading ideas on politics, art and society, imagining a world in which capitalism has been abolished by a workers' revolution and nature and society have become beautiful habitations for humanity. In an era that has seen the collapse of state socialism, Morris's damning critique of this conception, and his positing of a powerful alternative, are compelling reasons for paying attention to this classic of British socialism."--Jacket
