A new illustrated gift edition of a beloved classic.

A new illustrated gift edition of a beloved classic.Three hundred years ago, a great deal of the world as we now know it was still undiscovered. A voyage in those days was not a pleasant thing, and a traveller was likely to encounter mysterious islands and strange people. Danger lurked around every corner, and friends and foes are to be found unexpectedly, and in equal measure.When Lemeul Gulliver, a ship's surgeon, sets off on the high seas in search of adventure, things never seem to go quite according to plan. Through a series of disasters and misadventures, he finds himself cast upon strange islands whose inhabitants are of the most unusual size, and the most confusing philosophies. Yet Gulliver always seems to make it back to his home country where he recovers from one adventure shortly before setting sail once more and ending up in another one.Gulliver's Travels has been loved by many generations of readers for almost 300 years, and the telling of the misfortunes and pleasures of its eponymous hero is one of Jonathan Swift's most enduring legacies.
