Benjamine Mote 1726 . Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World. 1726. First edition, first printing (Teerink A). Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver. Two volumes (197 x 120mm), bound in calf with gilt ruled borders and gilt titles to the spine. Spine rebacked, with some old repairs to the hinges and corners. Internally clean with occasional foxing, especially to end pages. Five engraved maps. The author's masterpiece and landmark in the early development of the novel. The first printing was published on 28 October and sold out within a week and was quickly followed by two further printings in 1726, which are subtly different to the first printing, though bibliographically distinct as shown by Teerink in his bibliography of Swift, and referred to as Teerink AA and B issues. The work was immediately hailed as a classic, From the highest to the lowest.
