First thus, quarter leather hardback, marbled page edges. 23.5 × 15cm, lx + 507pp.

Jonathan Swift's classic work which is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary subgenre. This being the first edition to carry 'upwards of 400 wood-engravings by Grandville' and also with 'copius notes, a life of the author, and an essay on satirical fiction by W C Taylor'.


Poor. The leather is rubbed, faded, marked and scuffed, the front hinge is split open and the rear one is weak. The book lacks the rear endpaper, however, the main body of text is in good order.
