Gulliver's Travels

By Swift, Jonathan




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.

Gulliver’s Travels : Illustrated By Rex Whistler

Swift, Jonathan

A Two Volume Set. The First UK printing of this illustrated edition published by The Cresset Press in 1930. 2 volumes, folio in half-sheets. Original publisher's bindings by Wood, London which have undergone NO restoration or colouring. The BOOKS are in Very Good++ condition. Morocco, raised bands to spines forming compartments, gilt-lettered direct, vellum sides, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Sunning to the spines and with a little rubbing to the edges, spines and folds in places. Light marginal browning to the endpapers from turn-ins with some faint offsetting from a few engravings. No inscriptions. Hand-coloured frontispiece to each volume, 10 similar plates, vignette portait of Swift to title pages, 5 maps, head- and tailpieces, all engraved after the designs of Rex Whistler. First Cresset Press edition. Number '190' of 195 copies on handmade paper; there were also 10 copies on vellum. The short-lived Cresset Press, co-founded by John Eldred Howard in 1927 and run by Dennis Cohen and A. I. Meyers until 1931, produced fine editions of the classics and of Continental literature. Gulliver's Travels is one of the Press's finest books. The illustrative style of Rex Whistler, which the experimentalism of the 1920s, found its inspiration in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and so was well matched to Swift's classic. In this book Whistler employed his favourite device of setting most of the illustrations within a highly decorative rococo marginal frame. Housed in a custom solander box. A superb set and extremely scarce in their original bindings. A masterpiece of book design. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

GULLIVER'S TRAVELS

SWIFT, Jonathan

1726. [SWIFT, Jonathan]. TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. In FOUR PARTS. By LEMUEL GULLIVER, First a SURGEON, and then a CAPTAIN of several SHIPS. Vol. I.[II.] London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, 1726[-1727]. Mixed first and second edition. Four parts bound in two octavo volumes: xii,148,[vi],164; [vi],155,[1 blank],199,[1 blank]. Engraved frontisportrait of Gulliver in Vol. I in the usual second state, with the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of..." on the oval and a Latin inscription on the tablet. Also illustrated with four maps, two plans, and numerous wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary calf boards, expertly rebacked with later matching calf spines and leather labels, all edges stained red. Early ink ownership on front fly-leaf of Vol. I. Boards have gently rounded fore-corners and abraded surfaces. The lower joint of Vol II is starting. Rear endpapers in both volumes are replacements and are slightly toned. Occasional light foxing and/or soling to text, but very good overall. Vol. I is first edition, second printing (Teerink no. 290: first edition state AA) throughout, with all titles, typos, pagination, and signatures as called for. Vol. II is second edition (Teerink no. 293) throughout, with all titles, typos, omissions, pagination, and signatures as called for, including "The Second Edition, Corrected" on the title-page and the facing page of advertisements. Gulliver's Travels was an immediate success upon publication (28 October 1726), requiring many rapid, subsequent printings to meet demand, all of which has led to its bibliographical complexity. For example, the time elapsed between the printing of the two volumes in this set was only six months. And based upon the style, condition, and wear to the bindings of these volumes, they were probably mated at or immediately after publication in 1727.

Gulliver's Travels: An Account of the Four Voyages into Several Remote Regions of the World

Swift, Jonathan; Introduction by Jacques Barzan

Crown Publishing, NY, 1947. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 24 original prints and 160 drawings by Louis Quintanilla. "Regarded as the preeminent prose satirist in the English language, Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) intended this masterpiece... 'vex the world rather than divert it.' Savagely ironic... Written with disarming simplicity and careful attention to detail, this classic is diverse in its appeal: for children, it remains an enchanting fantasy. For adults, it is a witty parody of political life in Swift's time and a scathing send-up of manners and morals in 18th-century England." [Pub. Info] "This book [1947 edition] marks the first use of a new technique in the graphic arts. For the first time in publishing history... a great classic illustrated with original prints made directly from the artist's own work. And the artist, Luis Quintanilla, is truly a master whom many consider one of the great artists of our time." [Book Jacket] There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST THUS.
