I have two original books for sale by Jonathan Swift. The first is “Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World…by Lemuel Gulliver…” or better known as “Gulliver’s Travels”, 1751 London. I was going to scan this book and replicate it, but have decided against it.

The other book is, “Letters, Written by Jonathan Swift, D.D., Dean of St. Patrick’s Dublin…”, 1767. I am just throwing in this second book for free.

Price $195

“Gulliver’s Travels” is in good shape, except the front board and the first few pages are loose. In addition, a small section of the very thin leather has come loose from the front board. It will be no problem to glue back. I really should slow down long enough to do it for you. Size: about 1” X 4 1/4” X 6 3/4”

The other book included in this sell it my original 1767 book, “Letters, Written by Jonathan Swift, D.D., Dean of St. Patrick’s Dublin…” Size: about 1” X 4 5/8” X 7 3/8”. The front board is not only detached, but is missing. The spine appears to be splitting. The text block is intact, except for where the spine is starting to split. This book is full of interesting letters.

Let me know if you want these books. You can also visit the following link to see them for sale.
