Condition: good. The book is in near mint condition save for incipient foxing, and a small crease to the back, amongst other minor signs of wear. Pages are free of markings. With an introduction by Leopold "Leo" Damrosch and a new afterword by Nathaniel Rich. Also accompanied by thirty illustrations by Charles E. Brock and five maps of Gulliver's journeys. The text is complete and unabridged, but the type has been modernised (i. e. no capitalisation of nouns except according to modern English usage, &c.) It appears to be based on the first edition of 1726. It's been bowdlerised so much that it's often thought of as a work of children's literature, but the complete 'Gulliver's Travels' is anything but straightforwardly good-humoured fantasy. Swift vents his spleen here in a dark attack on the pretensions of man. A key work of the Augustan era.
