His first book, Studies in the History of the Renaissance--one of the most original and influential texts of the Victorian Aesthetic Movement--was described by Arthur Symons as "the most beautiful book of prose in our literature," and his later work moved Vernon Lee to call him "the natural exponent of the highest aesthetic doctrine."

The selection is accompanied by Alex Wong's critical and biographical introduction and rich explanatory notes. --! From publisher's description."@en ;
