The Annotated Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. Edited, With A Biographical Introduction and Notes by Isaac Asimov. Illustrated with drawings and engravings. A beautiful version of Jonathan Swift’s famous book, richly annotated in parallel columns by noted Scientific and Science Fiction writer, Isaac Asimov. The text, which is complete and unexpurgated, is based on the Faulkner text corrected by Swift himself and considered definitive by many scholars in the field. Enhanced with illustrations from the work of three centuries of Gulliver’s Travels illustrators, including various eighteenth-century English and French artists; Gavarni, J.J. Grandville, and T. Morten in the nineteenth century; Rackham and Herbert Cole from the turn of the century; and twentieth-century masters like Rex Whistler, Bofa, and Fritz Eichenberg.
