1865: A Rare Illustrated Gulliver's Travels With 28 Hand-colored Lithographs For Sale
PRINTED 1865: A RARE ILLUSTRATED GULLIVER'S TRAVELS WITH 28 HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPHED PLATES A EARLY MID 19th CENTURY PRECURSOR OF ELABORATELY ILLUSTRATED CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOKS The Book: SWIFT, Jonathan. Voyages de Gulliver. Abrege par Jules Rostaing. Coppin. P., Magnin, Blanchard et Cie, , 4, -57- p. 4to. 276.5 x 22 cm., 28 lithographic plates in two tones all hand colored. Light wear and soiling to red embossed cloth, moderate to heavy foxing throughout due to original paper quality. A very scarce 19th century handsome Gulliver. RAREAlbeit foxed, this is a rather remarkable mid-19th century picture book. The first modern picture is usually considered to be the German children's book Struwwelpeter from 1845. However, this painstaking lithographed and hand-colored Gulliver is certainly early in the genreand a precursor to the splendidly illustrated books that appear with much greater frequency toward the close of the century.
