The work is a prose satire by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary subgenre. Gulliver's Travels was a transparently anti-Whig satire. Benjamin Motte, the original publisher, recognising a best-seller but fearing prosecution, cut or altered the worst offending passages (such as the descriptions of the court contests in Lilliput and the rebellion of Lindalino), added some material in defence of Queen Anne to book II, and published it anonymously. The book was an instant sensation and sold out its first run in less than a week. Since then, it has never been out of print.

 Bon état: oeuvre complete ensemble dans un volume en reliure d"époque, plein veau, dos à nerfs, coiffe superieur légèrement usé.

Illustré avec le portrait gravé de Gulliver en frontispice , 4 gravures hors-texte, et 6 cartes gravées hors texte.

Tome Second, première partie, contenant le Voyage de Laputa, Balnibarbi, Glubbdubdribb, Luggnagg, & Japon. Seconde partie, Voyage au pays des Houyhnhnms, Tome Troisième, Contenant les Voiages de Brobdignag & des Sevarambes, & la Clef des deux Tomes précédens.

Nouvelle traduction plus ample, plus exacte, et plus fidéle que celle de Paris, avec figures, et cartes géographiques.
