The stones of Venice by John Ruskin( Book )

in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Treatise on architecture by John Ruskin. It was published in three volumes in 1851-53. Ruskin wrote the work in order to apply to the architecture of Venice the general principles enunciated in his The Seven Lamps of Architecture. Volume I, The Foundations, discusses architecture and its functional and ornamental aspects and presents a brief history of Venice. In Volume II, The Sea Stories, Ruskin discusses the Byzantine period and the climactic development of Venetian life, its Gothic period. In Volume III, The Fall, Ruskin puts forth his thesis that the onset of the Renaissance caused the city's architectural decline. Ruskin contended that Gothic architecture expressed "a state of pure national faith, and h domestic virtue" while Renaissance architecture expressed "concealed national infidelity, and h domestic corruption." -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
The last chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope( Book )

1 edition published in 1867 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Chronicle of Barset is the grand finale to the Barsetshire sereis of novels, Trollope's magnificnet portrayal of the professional and landed classes of Victorian England. The plot focuses on Mr. Crawley, the fanatically proud curate of Hogglestock already known to readers of Framley Parsonage. Accused of theft and persecuted by the domineering Mr. Proudie and her self-righteous followers, he is perhaps Trollope's only character conceived on a heroic scale, and his sufferings reach a tragic intensity. Other familiar characters on the Barsetshire landscape include Mr. Harding, whose old age is movingly described; Grace Crawley, who becomes romantically involved with Major Grantly; and Johnny Eames, who continues his pursuit of Lily Dale but becomes entangled in a dangerous flirtation with the intriguing Madalina Demolines. Lady Lufton, Mr. Robarts, the Greshams, and the Thornes also reappear to play their final part in the Barsetshire drama. - Back cover
