When Lemuel Gulliver sets off from London on a sea voyage, little does he know the many incredible and unbelievable misadventures awaiting. Shipwrecked at sea and nearly drowned, he washes ashore upon an exotic island called Liliput--where the people are only six inches tall! Next he visits a land of incredible giants called the Brobdingnagians. They are more than sixty feet tall! he travels to Lapauta, a city that floats in the city, and to Glubbdubdrib, the Island of Sorcerers. his final voyage brings him into contact with the Yahoos--a brutish race of subhumans--and an intelligent and virtuous race of horse, the Houyhnhnms.

From the Back Cover:

In this narrative of the gullible ship's doctor Lemuel Gulliver and his extraordinary travels, Jonathan Swift takes readers through a series of apparently child-like fantasy worlds of tiny people and giants, floating islands and talking horses. But through this fantastic journey, he also gave to literature an enduring model of mankind's follies, vulnerabilities, vanities, and self-destructiveness. Dangerously topical in its own time and much debated ever since, Gulliver's Travels is among those works of English literature that entrap and challenge readers in every period. This edition uses the 1735 edition as the copy text, retaining the original, unmodernized text. Historical appendices provide a context for the novel's literary models, scientific influences, and complex political and religious allusions.
