Abstract (in English)

Ruskin's comments to a correspondent in 1877 were prompted in part by the ongoing restoration of San Marco in Venice, and came at a time when decidedly few options were available for the restoration of deteriorating stone buildings. Although some primitives stone preservatives had been tried, the replacement or retooling of failing stone was the most common solution, much to Ruskin's dismay.
