Description:

2 volumes. A very interesting set with fine provenance. The Coleridge family copy. First edition, Teerink’s B issue of Vol. II dated 1726 and the Second edition of Vol. I, formatted, sized and in presentation as the firsts and published within just a few months of the first editions and set from the first issue of the first edition (the A edition). This is the first edition to include the "Verses," which had been separately printed in March of 1727. They were compressed into twenty pages and inserted here by the publisher after the title and before the text. This is also one of the earliest issues of the second edition, with the portrait found in the first editions and in only some copies of the second. Portrait frontispiece, 6 maps and plates. 8vo, full calf in contemporary style, lettered in gilt and elaborately tooled in gilt on the spines with panel designs incorporated within raised bands gilt ruled and stopped, the covers with 3 gilt ruled panels incorporating corner tools surrounding a central panel gilt. i-ii, [xx], iii-xii, 148, [x],164; [1] ads, [vi],155, [viii],199. An especially attractive copy of this increasingly scarce title. The calf remains in bright and excellent condition, the textblocks and engravings, sound, clean, crisp and unpressed. RARE EARLY ISSUE OF ONE OF THE GREAT WORKS IN THE HISTORY OF WORLD LITERATURE. THE COLERIDGE FAMILY COPY. INSCRIBED BY THE GREAT POET’S NEPHEW AND SON-IN-LAW HENRY N. COLERIDGE, BY F.G. COLERIDGE AND ALSO BY HIS GRANDDAUGHTER EDITH COLERIDGE. A SPECIAL COPY WITH WONDERFUL PROVENANCE. Copies with fine provenance are regrettably uncommon, and this copy remains a fine example of the book in its original aspect and with bindings in proper contemporary style. This edition was the first to include the five Verses (1. To Quinbus Flestrim. 2. The Lamentation. 3. To Mr. Lemuel Gulliver. 4. Mary Gulliver To Capt. Lemuel Gulliver. 5. The Words of the King of Brobdingnag.) which did not appear in the first impressions of late 1726 ). "Gulliver's Travels" is a biting political satire ingeniously styled after the many narratives of travel and exploration popular at the time and which Swift had read in the library of his employer, Sir William Temple. And though most satire, especially political satire, is quickly rendered unintelligible or uninteresting with the passage of time, Swift endowed his story with so much imagination that it has never passed out of the canon of classics in English literature.
