John Ruskin (1819-1900) wrote The Bible of Amiens in 1882 when he was sixty-three. Six years after Ruskin's death, Marcel Proust (1871-1922) published his translation La Bible d'Amiens at the age of thirty-five. This is the first translation into English of Proust's work which, in addition to the translation, includes a long preface and copious notes. The text on which this translation is based was published by Éditions Payot & Rivages in 2011.
