Dublin, G. Faulkner, 1761. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A good copy. First Dublin edition. An imaginary voyage, ala Gulliver, and a taproot for science fiction, proto sf if you like. An important work, presaging television and still photography in a manner; as important to the history of photography as to science fiction. An important book. There was a London edition too, dated 1761 on the first part's title page, and 1760 on the second part. The Dublin issue has 1761 on both title pages. That doesn't tell us much about which precedes. Contemporary calf, heavily rubbed and worn. The endpaper has an inkstain, with a collector's plate to the front pastedown. Prelims have some waterstaining, but not too bad, similar to the last few leaves. A nice copy overall. [10491, Hyraxia Books].
