A series of 40 autographed letters written by John Ruskin to  Jane, Lady Simon, and her husband Sir John Simon will be auctioned at Bonhams with an estimate of £40,000-60,000 tomorrow.

In this series of letters, Ruskin, the leading art critic of the Victorian era, discusses the works of Turner, his bouts of madness and the difficulty he found in loving others.

The intimate letters are dated from 1857-1871 and are to be sold as part of the library of the late Hugh Selbourne.
