London, Middle Hill Press, n.d. [1829]. First Edition. Unbound. A short adventure ostensibly written by Gulliver's grandson. Science fiction / fantasy. The author of the piece appears to be unknown. 4pp. A fifth page was printed in 1832 and is not included here, the piece is clearly incomplete though. COPAC reports a copy at the BL. WorldCat locates four copies. Not in Bleiler, Locke or any other book I can find [other than Lowndes, 1857]. Given its scarcity it's not surprising that it's not referenced. All sources report the printing as 1832, the 1829 date comes from the (included) envelope from legendary bookseller H.P. Kraus who notes the date as 1829. I've opted to bow to Kraus's wisdom for dating. [8025, Hyraxia Books].
