The Ruskin Bibliography

The Ruskin Bibliography is compiled by Stephen Wildman and was updated in May 2016.

The main bibliography includes details of works published from 1939 to the present day: there is also a short bibliography of work published in 2015. It is undergoing constant amendment, and readers are encouraged to point out errors (and offer corrections) to existing entries and suggest further additions - please contact us at

The bibliography incorporates entries from:

Ruskin Newsletter 1969-1989

Kirk H. Beetz: John Ruskin: A Bibliography, 1900-1974, Metuchen NJ: The Scarecrow Press, 1976

George Allan Cate: John Ruskin, a reference guide: A Selective Guide to Significant and Representative Works about him, Boston MA: G.K. Hall & Co., 1988
