Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE----------JOURNAL TO STELLA VOLUME 1 by Jonathan Swift, Edited by Harold Williams. The character of Swift is one of the gloomiest and least attractive among English writers. Intensely proud, he suffered bitterly in youth and early manhood from the humiliations of poverty and dependence, which preyed upon a mind in which the seeds of insanity were latent until it became dominated by a ferocious misanthropy. As a writer he is our greatest master of grave irony, and while he presents the most humorous ideas, the severity of his own countenance never relaxes. The Tale of a Tub and Gulliverโ€™s Travels are the greatest satires in the English language, although the concluding part of the latter is a savage and almost insane attack upon the whole human race. His history is a tragedy darkening into catastrophe, and as Thackeray has said, โ€œSo great a man he seems that thinking of him is like thinking of an Empire falling.โ€ Swift was tall and powerfully made. His eyes, blue and flashing under excitement, were the most remarkable part of his appearance. You are bidding on the stated Oxford Edition from 1963. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find LITERARY COLLECTIBLE. WANT TO SEE MORE?? COME VISIT MY STORE!
