About this Item

16mo. 2 vols. (32),262,(6);(8),260pp. Complete with the half-titles. Cont. calf, gilt decorated spines with brown calf labels. Very minor worming to covers & some rubbing, but still an attractive set. A notable and quite original companion to Swift's masterpiece which Desfontaines (1685-1745) had previously translated (in 1727) for the French edition. This French "sequel" was, in turn, translated into English in 1731. Barbier III, 502; Dunmore. IMAGINARY VOYAGES #94. The Paris edition precedes the Amsterdam edition of the same year. In addition, there are at least 2 Paris, 1730, reprints which are differently paginated from ours (all with fewer pages). Bookseller Inventory # 6716
