Top Ten Books and Paintings of the 1870s.

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is a throwback freebie so I thought I'd throwback all the way to the 1870s, which was a pretty good decade for art and books. Also, and this is the main reason I picked it, the 1870s are my most blogged-about decade! But, being as I do love the Pre-Raphaelites I couldn't miss them out, so here is my Top Ten Books and Pre-Raphaelite Paintings of the 1870s:
