The Library Edition of the Works of John Ruskin, edited by Cook and Wedderburn, has been available on CD-ROM for many years: changing technology has led to it becoming unusable for some readers - particularly those using Windows 7 and Mac systems. This pdf version, created by John Krug (Library Systems Co-ordinator, Lancaster University) and Jen Shepherd (Ruskin Library and Research Centre), makes it available to all once again.

The only software needed is a recent version of Adobe Reader. There have been some changes which have given a few readers problems with opening the files - with the exception of the complete set, the files have been altered slightly which will hopefully solve this.

All the volumes are now available, although minor revisions will continue to be made for sometime - if you should find any errors, please let us know at ruskin.library@lancaster.ac.uk
