Hi,


 


There don't appear to be any dates in the book that relate to the date printed but it does reference letters sent to and from a Richard Sympson from August 1726. There is a 52 page "biography notice" in the front if that helps and copies of various letters to and from Gulliver, a Mr Motte and others. The book has 360 pages in total, hard cover covered in material with what looks like two flowers on the front.


 


Please let me know if i can provide any other useful information. It does appear extremely old and the pages are quite brittle.

Hi,
Your version of Gulliver's Travels was published In 1900, unfortunately, it doesn't have much value, as it is not a rare edition and it's poor condition. It is worth $15-20 on the second market. I'm sorry but I have to be honest with you.
Thanks,
Wayne
