About This Item

New York: William Morrow, 1983. 96 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated with wonderful b&w drawings. "Shipwrecked near the kingdom of Lilliput, Lemuel Gulliver awakens to find himself surrounded by hundreds of tiny people, none more than six inches tall. The Lilliputians take the 'man-mountain' prisoner, and Gulliver learns to live in their miniature world, where he can eat three loaves of bread in a mouthful and children can play hide and seek in his hair! Eventually Gulliver escapes from Lilliput and returns home. But soon he longs for further adventure and so sets sail once again. On this journey, Gulliver finds himself in Brobdingnag - a country of giants, where this time he is a pocket-sized oddity, small enough to use a handkerchief as a blanket. Jonathan Swift's classic story is a perennial favorite with children everywhere. This handsome edition, lavishly illustrated with David Small's lively, richly detailed drawings, makes the story accessible to the youngest fan of fantasy and adventure." Minor wrinkling at bottom of front hinge. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two very small closed tears with creases, light rubbing and a few light scratches on rear panel, two tiny dints on rear hinge.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good. Illus. by David Small..

Synopsis

Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), officially Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, in Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships, is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. The book became tremendously popular as soon as it was published.
