Vista di Monta(g)na

Look what the mailman brought! John Ruskin, whose extended discussion of mountain scenery I found so inspiring (and with which I plan to start my course) has long been out of print. The google books version - all I could find - was grainy, so I looked to see if there were any used volume 4s available online. This seemed too good be true - a pristine complete 1865 set for $25! - and may yet be. If they were stolen from the Rare Books room of the Montana college library where they've spent the last century and a half I'll need to return them.
