Descripción: Benj. Motte, 1726. First edition, first printing (i.e. Teerink A). Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, as usual, with vertical chain lines and the lettering around the oval frame. Two volumes (197 x 120mm), bound in contemporary calf with gilt ruled borders and gilt titles to the spine. Binding sometime neatly rebacked with some old repairs to the hinges and corners. Internally clean with occasional browning. An excellent, tall set of this landmark novel in contemporary state. Five engraved maps. The author's masterpiece and landmark in the early development of the novel. The first printing was published on 28 October and sold out within a week and was quickly followed by two further printings in 1726, which are subtly different to the first printing, though bibliographically distinct as shown by Teerink in his bibliography of Swift, and referred to as Teerink AA and B issues. The work was immediately hailed as a classic, "From the highest to the lowest, it is universally read, from the Cabinet-council to the Nursery" - John Gay "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond Temporary Fame" (PMM) Teerink 290; PMM 185.

Descripción: London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, MDCCXXVI [1726]. 2 vols, 8vo, A-K8, L2, [-]1, 2[-]2, 2B-2L8, M2; pp. [i-v], vi-xvi, [1], 2-148; (6), [1], 2-164; engraved frontispiece and plates facing B1r and 2B1r. Vol. II: A3, B-K8, L4, M2, 2A4, 2B-2M8,N8, O4: (6), [1], 2-155, [156, blank]; (8), [1], 2-199, [200, blank]; engraved plates facing B1r, D4r, F5v, and 2B1r. 20th century full brown morocco, concentric central panels ruled in gilt, black and blind, gilt fleurons at corners, gilt backstrips a touch faded in (6) compartments, marbled endpapers. Gilt edges. Bookplate at the front (see below). The true first edition, Teerink A with all the first issue points. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state as usual. All six maps and plans present. Decorative woodcut and engraved head- and tailpieces throughout. ÒGulliverÕs Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fameÉ the brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the piquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputian and then by a mimikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the authorÕs original intentionsÓ (Printing and the Mind of Man, 185). Thus while Swift may have originally set out to write another of his razor-like satires, generations of readers including children love this book for the interminably entertaining story line. This copy was cleaned and rebound c. 1920, as books often were at that time, perhaps for Mrs. Poole. From the Caroline Boeing Poole Collection, sold by B.M. Rosenthal in 1977. Armorial bookplate bound in of Thomas Macro DD of Bury St Edmunds and Great Yarmouth (d.1743/4, aged 60); he was University Librarian at Cambridge so he might well have been an active book buyer and perhaps bought this copy when it was published as it is the rare first issue which was radically changed almost immediately after being published (see John Blatchly, Some Suffolk and Norfolk ex-libris. The Bookplate Society, 2000). Teerink 289. PMM 185. Rothschild 2104. Nº de ref. de la librería 104929

Descripción: The Cresset Press, London, 1930. Hardcover. The Impressive and Sought-After Vellum Version of theCresset Press "Gulliver," with a Complete Set of the Extra Plates. 343 x 235 mm (13 1/2 x 9 1/4"). Two bound volumes plus a portfolio of plates. No. VIII OF 10 COPIES ON ROMAN VELLUM WITH AN EXTRA SET OF THE PLATES ON VELLUM, EACH OF THEM SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Publisher's special russet morocco by Wood of London, raised bands flanked by simple blind tooling extending onto the boards, gilt titling, brass clasps and catches, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt, vellum endleaves. The extra plates housed in silk-covered chemise bound into boards covered with matching morocco. The whole contained in two extremely fine recent morocco-backed felt-lined folding boxes with raised bands and gilt titling, giving the appearance of three book spines. The main volumes with a total of 27 engravings (26 images), as called for: a title page vignette featuring a bust of Swift (appearing in each volume), eight head- and tailpieces, five full-page maps, and 12 DELICATELY HAND-COLORED COPPER-ENGRAVED PLATES (including two frontispieces) BY REX WHISTLER, each within an ornate baroque-style frame, AND WITH AN ADDITIONAL SUITE OF ALL 26 engraved images (the same 12 images that are colored in the main volumes also colored by hand in the extra suite), each of the 26 extra images signed by Whistler and separately matted. Original tissue guards. Ransom, p. 7. Spines of the text and plate volumes rather darkened (though evenly so), the morocco boards covering the plate chemise a bit soiled and somewhat scratched (the scratches well refurbished), but the original deluxe bindings showing almost no other wear and retaining much of their original appeal. Text and plates with only the most trivial of foxing or tonal variations to the vellum, and generally IN VERY FINE CONDITION INTERNALLY. This is the very rare vellum edition of one of the most beautifully printed and attractively illustrated private press books of the 1930s. Inspired by such masters as Watteau, Canoletto, and Boucher, Whistler's work, including the witty drawings here surrounded by rococo frames, recall the 18th century heyday of French book illustration. Horne quotes a 1984 exhibit at the British Museum that says, "This playful essay in 18th century pastiche is, like much fine English book-making of the 1920s and 1930s, aesthetically backward-looking. Whistler's drawings are matched by a text printed in a revival of John Baskerville's 18th century types." Reginald John "Rex" Whistler (1905-44) made a name for himself in mural painting, stage design, and book illustration, and in "Gulliver," his skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align to produce what is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Horne describes him as "one of the most gifted figures of the years between the wars," and laments that his artistic career was brought to a tragically premature end by World War II, during which Whistler died while serving as a tank troop leader in France. The Cresset Press operated between 1927 and 1931 under the direction of Dennis M. Cohen and A. I. Myers, and while its output was small, the books it produced were notable. Presswork was done at the Shakespeare Head Press run by Bernard Newdigate, perhaps the most important name in private press printing between the wars. Besides the present one, only one other copy of the Cresset Press "Gulliver" on vellum seems to have appeared at auction since 1975, and it had only six of the extra plates colored.

Descripción: London, for Benj. Motte, 1726, 1726. 2 volumes, octavo. Recent period-style full red morocco. Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (state B, as called for), 4 maps and 2 plans. First edition, Teerink's A edition with all the necessary points to distinguish it from the two later printings (Teerink AA and B) dated 1726. The first five editions of Gulliver's Travels, three octavo editions in 1726, one octavo and one 12mo edition in 1727, were all published by Benjamin Motte. The true first edition of Gulliver's Travels is one of the rarest and most desirable books in the English language. It was noted by John Gay that, "The whole impression sold in a week". It was hailed as a classic that "would last as long as the language, because it described the combination of qualities which made it at once a favourite book of children and a summary of bitter scorn for mankind" (DNB).

Descripción: London Cresset Press 1930, 1930. Three quarto volumes. From an edition of 205 copies, this is one of ten printed on Roman vellum. With twelve hand-colored copper-engraved illustrations by Rex Whistler, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and five maps. Also with an extra suite of all the engravings laid into a single volume, each signed by Whistler and individually matted. Whistler’s skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align in this work, which is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Viewing these finely detailed engravings on vellum lends them a dimensionality that cannot be found in the issue on paper. Bound in original full tan morocco by the Wood bindery. Some natural tonal variations to the vellum internally. A fine set of Whistler’s most important illustrated text in the rare vellum issue. Housed in two brown, morocco-backed folding cases. (Ransom, Selective Check Lists, p. 7). Nº de ref. de la librería 24665

Descripción: London Printed for Benj. Motte., 1726. First Edition of Gulliver's Travels [SWIFT, Jonathan]. Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver.London: Printed for Benj. Motte., 1726. First edition, Teerink’s State A, with the following points: Part I, p. 35, line 5 has "Subsidies" correctly spelled; Part III, p. 74 is misnumbered "44;" Part III, G6 is a cancel, with "Part III" at foot; Part IV, p. 52, line 1 has the misprint "buth is." Four parts in two octavo volumes. xvi, 148; [6], 164; [6], 155, [1]; [8], 199, [1] pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, with the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII." around the oval the the tablet bearing a Latin inscription (printed on paper with vertical chain-lines), four maps, and two plans. Modern antique-style mottled calf. Gilt double-rule border on covers, gilt spines with red and green morocco labels, gilt board edges, edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Small ink stain on frontispiece portrait. Short tear to upper margin of B7 in Part I. Some inoffensive washing at the beginning of Volume II. A little light foxing and soiling. Early ink signatures on recto of frontispiece and on title-page of Volume I. Otherwise an excellent set. Housed together in a red morocco clamshell case. Gulliver’s Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English language—or any language, for that matter. It was an immediate success, which accounts in part for its bibliographical complexity, and has been hailed as a book that "would last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nations" (D.N.B.). Vice not withstanding, and unintentionally, it has become not just a great satirical novel, but a juvenile classic as well. Grolier, 100 English, 42. Hubbard, pp. 15-17.

Descripción: Dublin, 15 April 1735, 1735. Quarto folded to form a bifolium (224 × 181 mm), two pages, docketed on terminal blank. Paper repairs to folds in terminal blank, minor soiling. Swift asks the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland that Michael Aldrich, a relation of his friends the Grattans, be made master of a barrack at Kinsale. The letter is written in a characteristically witty, teasing tone, showing Swift's easy intimacy with the man he declared one of the most agreeable and well- informed men, and best conversationalists, he had ever met. The letter opens by recalling their recently dining together with Swift's friends, Rev Patrick Delany (1685?–1768), at Delville, Delany's villa outside Dublin, and Dr Richard Helsham (1683–1738), Swift's physician. "Now, this same Dr. Helsham hath ordred me to write to Your Grace in behalf of one Alderman Aldrich; who is master of the Dublin Barrack, and is as high a Whig, and more at your Devotion than I could perhaps wish him to be. And yet he is a very honest Gentleman, and which is more important, a near Relation of the Grattans, who, in Your Grace's absence are governors of all Ireland, and your Vicegerents when you are here, as I have often told you. They consist of an Alderman – whom you are to find Lord Mayor at Michaelmas next; of a Doctor who kills or cures half the City, of two Parsons my subjects as Prebendaryes, who rule the other half, and of a vagrant Brother who governs the North. They are all Brethren, and your Army of twelve thousand soldiers are not able to stand against them. Now, Your Grace is to understand, that these Grattans will stickle to death for all their Cousins to the five and fiftieth degree; and consequently this same Alderman Aldrich being onely removed two degrees of Kindred, and having a Son as great a Whig as the Father, hath prevayled with Dr. Helsham to make me write to Your Grace". Having proceeded to make the case for Michael Aldrich, Swift adds that "you will have several Requests this Post with the same Request, perhaps for different Persons, but you are to observe only mine, because it will come three minutes before any other. I think this is the third request I have made to Your Grace. You have granted the two first, and therefore must grant the third. For, when I knew Courts, those who had received a dozen favors, were utterly disobliged if they were denyed the thirteenth. Besides, if this be not granted the Grattans will rise in rebellion, which I tremble to think of." Swift also makes a complaint about Dorset's cousin Lady Elizabeth ("Betty") Germain of Drayton House, Swift's old friend and constant correspondent: "My Lady Eliz. Germain uses me very ill in her Letters. I want a Present from her, and desire you will please to order, that it may be a seal. Mine are too small for the fashion; and I would have a large one, worth forty shillings at least." Provenance: by descent, published in 1904 as in the collection of Mrs. Stopford-Sackville, of Drayton House. Nº de ref. de la librería 90692

Descripción: A superb and significant two-page autograph letter signed by Jonathan Swift ("Jonath Swift"), 22nd March 1734. Swift writes a letter of recommendation for his friend Thomas Sheridan, to the Duke of Dorset. In full, "My Lord, Your Grace must please to remember that I carried you to see a comedy of Terence acted by the Scholars of Doctor Sheridan, with which performance you were very well pleased. The Doctor is the most learned person I know in this kingdom, and the best schoolmaster here in the memory of man, having an excellent tast[e] in all parts of Literature. I prevayled on my Lord Cartaret to make him one of his Chaplains, and to bestow him a good living, which the Doctor afterwards exchanged for another about seven miles from Dublin. But his health impairing by the Air of the Town, and being invited by the Gentlemen of the County of Cavan to accept the Free School of Cavan, which is endowed equall to his living, and he being born in the county, the present schoolmaster, one Mr. Knowlls, is desirous to change his school for the Doctor’s living of much the same value, called Dunboyn in your Grace’s gift. This affair hath been so long managing, that it was in agitation before you left me and I begged your consent for the change which, as a very reasonable request, not crossing any measures of your Grace, you were pleased to grant. All things have been long agreed, the B[isho]p of Kilmore (Hort) hath writ to you upon it, so your Lords Justices have done, for some months past but being a thing of no great consequence to the publick State of the Kingdom – your secretaryes have forgot it. In the mean time the poor Doctor hath given up his school in town, to his great loss, and hath parted with his house, continuing in uneasiness and suspence till your letter comes. Therefore I humbly beg, you will please to order me of your secretaryes immediately to send the letter, that will impower the Doctor and Knowles the Schoolmaster to exchange stations. My letter is the worst part of the matter, because it will cost you three minutes to read, but the request is short and reasonable. I writ some day ago to my Lady E. Germain on the same purpose, but it is possible her ladyship might forget; which your Grace to my knowledge is not capable of. I am with the highest respect, My Lord, your Grace’s most obedient and most humble servant, Jonath Swift". Light age-toning and age-spotting, otherwise in remarkably fine condition. Swift’s autograph is extremely rare in any format. Thomas Sheridan (1687 - 1738) was a writer and schoolmaster, and Swift’s principle collaborator. Sheridan and Swift collaborated on a number of literary projects together. In 1725, as royal chaplain, Sheridan delivered a sermon that was considered by some as politically suspect, and his appointment was cancelled. Sheridan did, indeed, succeed in the job change requested by Swift, and became the headmaster of Cavan School in 1735, where he remained for three years until his death. Whilst Swift’s relationship with Sheridan did ultimately become acrimonious (the exact reasons are not known why), this letter is testimony to Swift’s repeated efforts to help his friend in his career path. A wonderful association piece. Nº de ref. de la librería 000236

Descripción: London: Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. 4 parts in two volumes (as issued), octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches). Engraved portrait frontispiece, 6 engraved maps and plates. Contemporary panelled calf, spine with raised bands, morocco lettering pieces in the second compartments. Neat repairs to hinge of vol. 1. All within a modern black morocco-backed box. First edition, second issue of this 18th century masterpiece of English literature: both the greatest of all satirical fables and a classic children's tale. This copy is a first edition, Teerink's "AA" issue, with the portrait of Gulliver in the second state as usual. Unusually, both volumes conform to Teerink's AA, with that issue more commonly found with a Teerink B of the second volume. Swift's best known work was published anonymously. Written in Dublin between about 1720 and 1725, the finished manuscript was brought to England by Swift when he left Ireland for London in March 1726. During his visit he stayed with friends, including Alexander Pope. Pope, along with John Gay and John Arbuthnot, helped Swift arrange for the publication of the book which was first published on 28 October 1726. Even after its publication Swift kept up the public pretence of having had no hand in it, but the immediate popularity of the work can be gauged from the fact that there were four printings within a year, as well as translations in French, German, and Dutch.

Descripción: 1726. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1st Edition. Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts by Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships. Two volumes, 8vo. Frontispiece portrait and six plates (five maps and a design for a thought machine). London, Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. First edition, third issue. [Teerink's state B, published in December 1726. There were three issues of the first edition of the Travels published in 1726, known as the A, AA, and B editions. The A edition was published in October of 1726 and sold out within a week]. Original brown panelled calf binding with decorative blind ruled borders and corner pieces. Spines with raised bands, title labels heavily worn on volume 1 and just the remnants left on volume 2. Volume numbers stamped in gilt in 4th compartment. Spines scuffed, head of spines worn, joints cracked, but bindings sound. The text of both volumes bright and fresh throughout. A very good set, rarely found in contemporary bindings. The first printing of Gulliver's Travels was in October of 1726 and there were four distinct 8vo editions (all by Motte) and further 12mo editions within a year. The first three octavo editions are traditionally considered to comprise the First Edition. Swift endeavoured to remain anonymous as the author of the travels. The printer Motte wrote that he received the second part of the travels 'he knew not from whence, nor from whom, dropped at his house in the dark, from a hackney coach. Gulliver’s Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame. All those who had been fascinated by the realism and vivid detail of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe were captivated again, even though they knew that Gulliver must be fiction. The brilliance and thoroughness, with which his logic and invention work out the piquancy of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputians, and then by a minikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the author’s original intention. Gulliver s Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable (PMM). [Grolier], [100 English, 42]. [Printing and the Mind of Man 185]. [Teerink 289]. Nº de ref. de la librería 42847

Descripción: London: The Cresset Press, 1930, 1930. 2 volumes bound in 1, folio. Recent green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, titles to spine gilt, 5 raised bands, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a green cloth solander case. A little mild creasing to spine. An superb copy. Volume I with colour frontispiece and 5 plates, and 2 maps. Volume II with colour frontispiece and 6 plates, 3 maps, and 1 diagram. Head and tail pieces throughout. First Cresset Press edition, first impression. One of 195 copies on handmade paper from a limited edition of 205 numbered copies. 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 and reprints of the classics and Continental literature. Gulliver's Travels is one of the Press's finest books. The illustrative style of Rex Whistler (1905–1944), eschewing 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. A beautiful copy of this masterpiece of the book arts.

The 'A' edition appeared on 28 October 1726, the 'AA" edition in mid-November, and this 'B' edition, which was set up from the AA edition, was published in December. This, Swift's best known work, was published anonymously. Written in Dublin between about 1720 and 1725, the finished manuscript was brought to England by Swift when he left Ireland for London in March 1726. During his visit he stayed with friends, including Alexander Pope. Pope, along with John Gay and John Arbuthnot, helped Swift arrange for the publication of the book. Even after its publication Swift kept up the public pretence of having had no hand in it, but the immediate popularity of the work can be gauged from the fact that there were four printings within a year, translations into French, German, and Dutch, and the spurious continuation and other pastiches. The second part of the continuation was adapted from Siden's THE HISTORY OF THE SEVARITES (1675- 9), but the first part is an original imitation. During the 18th century, it was often included in translations of the genuine work. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 185. ROTHSCHILD 2108. TEERINK 291-2. BLEILER, p. 190. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 42.

Descripción: Printed for Benj. Motte, London, 1726. Hardcover. 197 x 127 mm (7 3/4 x 5"). Usual misnumbered pages in volume I; 16-page publisher's catalogue at the end of volume II. Two volumes. FIRST EDITION, Third Issue (Teerink's "B" Edition). Quite pretty 19th century speckled calf by Lloyd & Wallis (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt French fillet border, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with central floral sprig surrounded by small tools and floral cornerpieces, one red and one green morocco label, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (in the second state), four maps, and two plans. Front pastedown with bookplate of Mrs. L. Bartlett. Teerink 291; PMM 185; Rothschild 2108. Joints somewhat rubbed and flaked (though not with any cracks), extremities a bit worn, spines uniformly darkened a shade and with a hint of abrasion (the gilt also slightly dulled), minor marks and spots to boards, but the attractively decorated bindings entirely solid and still rather pretty. First volume with variable browning and offsetting throughout, noticeable in two gatherings (perhaps because of washing?), second volume much better, with only a hint of browning right at edges, isolated trivial defects like a rust spot here and there, but the text in both volumes otherwise fresh and clean. This is the third distinct issue (all printed within two months of each other) of the first edition of probably the greatest satire in the English language. A book with the special merit of appealing to readers of every age, the work ostensibly mocks the popular travel writings of the day, but "Gulliver" was in fact a subtle but potent attack on the contemporary political situation. While most works that rely on current fashions and politics quickly become dated, this one has transcended its time to give Swift immortality because of what PMM calls his two great gifts, "a sustained logic in invention and a facility for absorbing the reader till fiction becomes reality." When the first run sold out within a week of its October 28 printing, the publisher immediately went to work to satisfy demand, with two more issues appearing before the end of the year, ours being published in December.

Descripción: London: for Benj. Motte, 1726, 1726. 2 volumes, octavo (178 × 115 mm). Contemporary calf, red and green morocco labels, red speckled edges. Ownership signature partially erased from verso of each front free endpaper. Repairs to joints and corners, some light marking and spotting to contents, minor crease and tear to frontispiece. Excellent condition. Frontispiece portrait, 5 maps, and 1 diagram. Teerink's "B" edition, with the portrait of Gulliver in second state, as usual. The first three editions of Gulliver's Travels are all octavos published by Benjamin Motte dated 1726 without edition statement, and were long thought of as merely different issues. The edition designated Second on the title-page is dated 1727. It was noted by John Gay that, "The whole impression sold in a week". It was hailed as a classic that "would last as long as the language, because it described the combination of qualities which made it at once a favourite book of children and a summary of bitter scorn for mankind" (DNB). "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift immortality beyond temporary fame" (PMM 185). PMM; Teerink B. Nº de ref. de la librería 66018

Descripción: 1726. Estado de conservación: Very Good. [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. Nº de ref. de la librería 84107

Descripción: Benj. Motte, 1726. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. No Jacket. 2nd Edition. Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. frontispiece portrait (in second state) and 6 further plates. A mixed set, the first volume being from the Teerink AA (second) edition (with the word “Captain” on the title page broken after “Cap” and then continued on the next line) and the second volume from the Teerink B (third) edition (with no comma after “Year” on special IV title page). The first three editions were once considered to be different issues of a single first edition. Later bibliographical analysis demonstrated that they were separate editions, each set from the previous, but Teerink, acknowledging the work done to identify them, still thought it ‘advisable to stick to the well-established practice of calling the three 1726 editions first’, in part because both the printer and the author thought of them that way. Very good in leather bindings and highly gilt-decorated spines. The first volume measures 19.2 cm tall and the second volume is 20.3 cm tall. Housed in a custom-made collector’s slipcase.

Descripción: printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle-Temple Gate, in Fleet-Street, M,DCC,XXVI. [1726], London, 1726. Full Calf. Estado de conservación: Fine. First Edition. Four parts in two octavo volumes, with continuous pagination to each volume (the parts of the first two editions/issues were separately paginated, giving rise to the suggestion they were originally issued in parts): viii,[4],148,[6],149-310; [6],154,[8],155-353,[1]pp (numerous misnumbered pages, but text continuous and complete), engraved frontispiece portrait of Lemuel Gulliver by Sturter Sheppard, in second state, printed on paper with vertical chain lines, with "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII." around the oval and beneath, on a tablet where the inscription first appeared, a quotation, in Latin, from Persius; five engraved maps (two for Part III and one for each of the other Parts), and engraved plate depicting the writing machine in the "Grand Academy of Lagado" in Part III; decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and historiated initials. Early nineteenth-century speckled calf, very skillfully rebacked; red and black morocco lettering pieces gilt; marbled end papers; all edges gilt; cloth slipcase. A superb presentation, bindings square, tight and unmarked; contents clean and fresh (unobtrusively washed with faded signature on title page, vol. II). Teerink-Scouten 291. Rothschild 2108. Printing and the Mind of Man 185. Grolier English 100, 42. Third Issue/Edition (Teerink "B"), published in December, 1726 (following appearance of the first issue on October 28). For nearly two hundred years, the three separate appearances of Gulliver's Travels from 1726 (Teerink A, AA and B) were considered different issues of a single first edition. Early in the twentieth century bibliographical analysis demonstrated that these were, in fact, separate editions, each set from the previous, but Teerink still thought it "advisable to stick to the well established practice of calling the three 1726 editions first," largely because the publisher (Benjamin Motte), as well as Swift (in letters to Pope and Ford), thought of them in that way, describing only the edition following Teerink B (the 1727 octavo edition) as "The Second Edition" (vol. 1 title page) and "The Second Edition, Corrected" (vol. 2 title page) and the 1727 duodecimo as the Third (all five published by Motte), "after which Bathurst's 1742, 1747 and 1751 editions as 'fourth,' 'fifth' and 'sixth' follow in regular sequence." The several editions of 1726 all consist of two volumes of two parts each describing voyages to: I. Lilliput; II. Brobdingnag; III. Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Glubdubdrib, and Japan, and IV. the Country of the Houyhnhnms. The distinguishing feature of the third issue/edition, according to Williams (whose exhaustive analysis of all five Motte editions, in the introduction and notes to the definitive edition of Swift's text, appeared in 1926), "is the continuous pagination and continuous count by signatures throughout each volume." (Williams, p. lxxiv) "Gulliver's Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable, but it has also become a tale for children. For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the [book's] historical background, twenty have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story."
