No date, circa 1910. Hinges repaired, minor bookplate remnants on endpapers. 446 pp. 8vo. Original pictorial cloth. 10 color plates and 50 wood engravings. Part of a series of illustrated classics, each 'illustrated by 10 full-page colored plates, printed in eight colors, and numerous wood cuts from designs by Sir John Gilbert, Harrison Weir, Walter Crane, J.D. Watson, John Tenniel, and other preeminent artists.' Includes a biographical sketch of the author by John Francis Waller, and an introduction providing some history of the work. From the preeminent prose satirist in the English language, a great classic recounting the remarkable journeys of ship's surgeon Lemuel Gulliver. For children it remains an enchanting fantasy; for adults, a witty parody of political life in Swift's time and a scathing send-up of manners and morals in 18th-century England.
