Gulliver’s Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World 1930
GULLIVER'S TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. Arranged in Three Parts from the original of Jonathan Swift. By M. Dodge Holmes, Edwin J. Prittie (Illustrator), The John C. Winston Co., Philadelphia, 1930.
"Gulliver's Travels" follows Lemuel Gulliver, a ship's surgeon who has a passion for traveling the world. Through shipwrecks, pirate attacks, and other various misadventures, he finds himself in various strange locations all over the world -- an island populated by tiny people who see him as a giant, a land of giants who see him as a tiny person himself, a floating island of self-professed geniuses whose philosophies and inventions are nothing short of insane, a race of immortals who prove that immortality isn't all its cracked up to be, and a race of intelligent horses who view humans as abominable beasts. And along the way Gulliver has a chance to proclaim the might and supposed superiority of the British Empire... only for his claims to be laughed at and proven wrong along the way.
