A beautifully illustrated, large-format antique hardback edition of Gulliver's Travels Into Several Remote Regions of the World by Dean Swift. Undated but research shows this to be a "new edition" published in 1870 by Cassell, Petter and Galpin of London. This edition has explanatory notes and a thorough biography of the author and is beautifully illustrated throughout the book by T Morten (see photos). In a lovely binding, and in good condition.

Inside the pages have mild tanning and spotting through the text. With a small name on the front paste down (see photos) but no other writing or markings of previous ownership. The illustrations are numerous, many are full-page and they are some of the best for any edition of Gulliver's Travels that I have seen. Every page of text has an intricate border. The outside edges are tanned red, as published.

In a leather binding with marbled papered sides. Again in top order for a book of this age. With just a little rubbing to the edges and corners. The leather spine has five raised bands with intricate gilt work and there is a red leather title plate. Again in super condition and looking eye-catching on display. An impressive edition.

Your antique copy of Gulliver's Travels will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. A gift message can be included in the parcel if desired.

H 27.5 cm x W 20 cm, 352 pages, 1.26 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped and sent simply in the full packaging please add a note to the order.
