About this Item: London: Benj. Motte, 1726. Hardcover. 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. Seller Inventory # ABE-1491501870503

About this Item: 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.[Gulliver's Travels]. 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. Printing and the Mind of Man 185. Rothschild 2104. Teerink 289. HBS 66467. $45,000. Seller Inventory # 66467
