Gulliver's Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World

Jonathan Swift

J. Walker; 1819

Binding:  Hardback  |  Condition: Very Good  | 

Splendid little (lilliputian) edition of Swift's great satire. Written in 1726, Lemuel Gulliver's Travels was immediately popular, with the strength of its narrative and its pastiche of contemporary travel writing, over time however, appreciation grew for the depth and sophistication of Swift's satire and social criticism. Bound in full calf with raised bands and gilt decoration. Elaborate blind-stamped design to covers. Outer dentelles. All edges gilt. Engraved frontispiece and title page. 32mo. (175x130mm) [xiv] 322pp. Bumping to top and tail of spine. General mild shelfwear. Contents clean and binding tight. Very good.
