Item Description: London: Benj. Motte, 1726. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION. This is an outstanding untouched example of Teerink’s A edition, the true first edition, preceding the AA and B editions. As Sir William Temple’s secretary at Moor Park, the young Swift had access to many travel accounts in Temple’s library. A frequent reader of such books during his formative years, Swift began working in 1714 on his own fictional account of the travels of Martin Scriblerus. The success of Robinson Crusoe (1719) helped spur on the writing of the book, a satire not only of travel narratives but of many aspects of eighteenth-century life including politics, science, commerce, and society. By the 1720s that work had become Gulliver’s Travels. In March 1726 Swift came to England for the first time since 1714, bringing the manuscript of Gulliver’s Travels. “To preserve his anonymity, Swift dealt with Motte by post and through intermediaries. It has always been assumed that political prudence was the main reason for Swift’s so carefully preserving the secret of his authorship. Certainly Swift enjoyed the thought (whether real or illusion) of writing dangerously” (Lock, “The Text of Gulliver’s Travels”). The author returned to Dublin even before the parcel had been delivered to the publisher. Although it was rumored that Swift was the author, he maintained the fiction that he knew nothing of the authorship in his conversation and correspondence. Motte hurried the book into print, using five printers who took different sections of the text. The initial printing (Teerink A) sold out within one week, and two additional editions (AA and B) soon followed. Gulliver’s Travels was an immediate success, and the book has remained one of the enduring classics of English literature. Thomas Gay wrote that “from the highest to the lowest it is universally read, from the Cabinet Council to the Nursery.” The influence of Gulliver’s Travels has been vast. The terms Lilliputian, Brobdingnagian, and Yahoo have entered the language. The book inspired countless sequels, adaptations, parodies, and imitations worldwide in print, comics, cartoons, television, stage, and film. The wildly imaginative book became a source of inspiration for authors from Voltaire to Orwell, and it is one of the few works of fiction of its time that is still widely read for pleasure. A fine, unrestored copy of Gulliver’s Travels is a cornerstone of any collection of the greatest books in English literature. Teerink 28 (A edition). Rothschild 2104-6. Printing and the Mind of Man 289. Grolier/English 42. Two volumes. Second state of portrait as usual. Contemporary paneled calf. One joint cracked, another slightly cracked, a few minor flaws, but an unusually fine set. Calf case. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1491501870503

Item Description: Printed for Benj. Motte, London, 1726. 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.

Item Description: printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle-Temple Gate, in Fleet-Street, M,DCC,XXVI. [1726], London, 1726. Full Calf. Book Condition: 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." (PMM) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
