Item Description: Cresset Press, London, 1930. 343 x 235 mm. (13 1/2 x 9 1/4"). Two bound volumes plus a portfolio of plates. No. VIII OF 10 COPIES ON ROMAN VELLUM WITH AN EXTRA SET OF THE PLATES ON VELLUM, EACH OF THEM SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Publisher's special russet morocco by Wood of London, raised bands flanked by simple blind tooling extending onto the boards, gilt titling, brass clasps and catches, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt, vellum endleaves. The extra plates housed in silk-covered chemise bound into boards covered with matching morocco. The whole contained in two extremely fine recent morocco-backed felt-lined folding boxes with raised bands and gilt titling, giving the appearance of three book spines. The main volumes with a total of 27 engravings (26 images), as called for: a title page vignette featuring a bust of Swift (appearing in each volume), eight head- and tailpieces, five full-page maps, and 12 DELICATELY HAND-COLORED COPPER-ENGRAVED PLATES (including two frontispieces) BY REX WHISTLER, each within an ornate baroque-style frame, AND WITH AN ADDITIONAL SUITE OF ALL 26 engraved images (the same 12 images that are colored in the main volumes also colored by hand in the extra suite), each of the 26 extra images signed by Whistler and separately matted. Original tissue guards. Ransom, p. 7. Spines of the text and plate volumes rather darkened (though evenly so), the morocco boards covering the plate chemise a bit soiled and somewhat scratched (the scratches well refurbished), but the original deluxe bindings showing almost no other wear and retaining much of their original appeal. Text and plates with only the most trivial of foxing or tonal variations to the vellum, and generally IN VERY FINE CONDITION INTERNALLY. This is the very rare vellum edition of one of the most beautifully printed and attractively illustrated private press books of the 1930s. Inspired by such masters as Watteau, Canoletto, and Boucher, Whistler's work, including the witty drawings here surrounded by rococo frames, recall the 18th century heyday of French book illustration. Horne quotes a 1984 exhibit at the British Museum that says, "This playful essay in 18th century pastiche is, like much fine English book-making of the 1920s and 1930s, aesthetically backward-looking. Whistler's drawings are matched by a text printed in a revival of John Baskerville's 18th century types." Reginald John "Rex" Whistler (1905-44) made a name for himself in mural painting, stage design, and book illustration, and in "Gulliver," his skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align to produce what is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Horne describes him as "one of the most gifted figures of the years between the wars," and laments that his artistic career was brought to a tragically premature end by World War II, during which Whistler died while serving as a tank troop leader in France. The Cresset Press operated between 1927 and 1931 under the direction of Dennis M. Cohen and A. I. Myers, and while its output was small, the books it produced were notable. Presswork was done at the Shakespeare Head Press run by Bernard Newdigate, perhaps the most important name in private press printing between the wars. Besides the present one, only one other copy of the Cresset Press "Gulliver" on vellum seems to have appeared at auction since 1975, and it had only six of the extra plates colored. This is the very rare vellum edition of one of the most beautifully printed and attractively illustrated private press books of the 1930s. Inspired by such masters as Watteau, Canoletto, and Boucher, Whistler's work, including the witty drawings here surrounded by rococo frames, recall the 18th century heyday of French book illustration.

Item Description: Cresset Press, London, 1930. Whistler, Rex (illustrator). Three quarto volumes. From an edition of 205 copies, this is one of ten printed on Roman vellum. With twelve hand-colored copper-engraved illustrations by Rex Whistler, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and five maps. Also with an extra suite of all the engravings laid into a single volume, each signed by Whistler and individually matted. Whistler's skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align in this work, which is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Viewing these finely detailed engravings on vellum lends them a dimensionality that cannot be found in the issue on paper. Bound in original full tan morocco by the Wood bindery. Some natural tonal variations to the vellum internally. A fine set of Whistler's most important illustrated text in the rare vellum issue. Housed in two brown, morocco-backed folding cases.

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: 1726. Book Condition: Very Good. [SWIFT, Jonathan]. TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. In FOUR PARTS. By LEMUEL GULLIVER, First a SURGEON, and then a CAPTAIN of several SHIPS. Vol. I.[II.] London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, 1726[-1727]. Mixed first and second edition. Four parts bound in two octavo volumes: xii,148,[vi],164; [vi],155,[1 blank],199,[1 blank]. Engraved frontisportrait of Gulliver in Vol. I in the usual second state, with the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of." on the oval and a Latin inscription on the tablet. Also illustrated with four maps, two plans, and numerous wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary calf boards, expertly rebacked with later matching calf spines and leather labels, all edges stained red. Early ink ownership on front fly-leaf of Vol. I. Boards have gently rounded fore- corners and abraded surfaces. The lower joint of Vol II is starting. Rear endpapers in both volumes are replacements and are slightly toned. Occasional light foxing and/or soling to text, but very good overall. Vol. I is first edition, second printing (Teerink no. 290: first edition state AA) throughout, with all titles, typos, pagination, and signatures as called for. Vol. II is second edition (Teerink no. 293) throughout, with all titles, typos, omissions, pagination, and signatures as called for, including "The Second Edition, Corrected" on the title-page and the facing page of advertisements. Gulliver's Travels was an immediate success upon publication (28 October 1726), requiring many rapid, subsequent printings to meet demand, all of which has led to its bibliographical complexity. For example, the time elapsed between the printing of the two volumes in this set was only six months. And based upon the style, condition, and wear to the bindings of these volumes, they were probably mated at or immediately after publication in 1727. Bookseller Inventory # 84107

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.

Item Description: Dublin: Printed By and for Geo. Faulkner, 1744., 1744. Book Condition: Very Good. 12mo. Volume 3 only (of 4). Full calf, spine titled in gilt. Engraved frontispiece and six inserted plates (two are folding maps). In this copy the Contents pages (Signature 'A', 4 leaves) are bound at the rear between pages 300 / 301 (Leaves O4 / O5), and the final signature (headed: 'A Letter From Captain Gulliver To His Cousin Sympson' and terminating in a page of publisher's ads) is repeated; there are two copies of the signature bound in, one after the other. This final signature, signed "***" , was at the front of the volume in the 1735 edition, sans ads, and was placed immediately after the Contents pages; It is entirely re-set in this 1744 edition. One leaf (C4, mis-signed D4) has a small piece torn from the lower corner, not affecting text; three leaves bear notes in pen in the bottom margins, and there are five pages of description and analysis of the work written in pen in a close (unknown) hand, on the first two blanks and recto of the frontispiece. A strip is trimmed from the top edge of the title page, where a signature has been removed, some moderate wear to the top of the spine and joints, a very good copy otherwise. Faulkner's Dublin edition of 1735 was the first attempt at a collected edition of Swift, and is notable because Swift revised the text of Gulliver for it. This volume is from a later edition of the set, which was published in 4 volumes, then expanded to 6 volumes. Ads at the rear of this 1744 edition indicate that the set had lately been expanded to six volumes, which were available in octavo or pocket formats. For a more detailed discussion of this editon, see Marshall (A.): "The 1735 Faulkner Edition of Swift's Works" in THE LIBRARY, issue of June, 2013. This 1744 edition is quite scarce.

Item Description: London -S O Beeton, 1864. Hardcover. Book Condition: VERY GOOD INDEED. A beautifully illustrated edition of Swift's famous Gulliver's Travels. With a coloured chromolithographic frontispiece and title page and upwards of three-hundred black and white vignette engravings by J G Thomson. In an attractive contemporary full calfgilt detailed Zaehnsdorf binding. Gulliver's Travels is a prose satire on human nature and the 'traveller's tales' literary sub genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work. Thematically, Gulliver's Travels has been subject to several designations. It has been described as Menippean satire, a children's story, proto-science fiction as well as a forerunner for the modern novel. Its three major themes involve a satirical view of the European government and the petty differences between religions, whether men are inherently corrupt and a restatement of Swift's previously addressed topic of ancients versus moderns. Condition: In a full calf binding with gilt stamped detailing to the spine. Externally, very smart with some rubbing to the spine and just a few marks to the boards. In a Zaehnsdorf binding, as indicated from binder's stamp to verso of front endpaper. Gift inscription to verso of front free endpaper, P Merrick Pryce With the Best Wishes of W Lewisham on His Leaving Eton, Xmas 1865. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned to edges with scattered marginal spotting throughout, heavier to the first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. Bookseller Inventory # 050567
