Dealer Notes
"The principal material on which this Biography is founded consists of Ruskin's diaries, note-books, and letters which have been placed at my disposal by his executors ... The late Mr. George Allen gave me some personal reminiscences of his long connexion with Ruskin." (cf. Prefatory Note).
