Gullivers Reisen ist das bekannteste Werk des irischen Schriftstellers, anglikanischen Priesters und Politikers Jonathan Swift. In dieser Originalfassung besteht der satirische Roman aus vier Teilen. In anschaulicher Erzählweise bringt Swift seine Verbitterung über zeitgenössische Missstände und seine Auffassung von der Relativität der menschlichen Werte zum Ausdruck. Bekannt ist insbesondere die zweiteilige Kinderbuchausgabe, in welcher Gulliver erst das Land der Zwerge entdeckt und dann im Land der Riesen landet. In ihr fehlen die sozialkritischen und satirischen Positionen. Zur Inhalt: Gulliver nimmt eine Tätigkeit auf einem Schiff an und arbeitet bald darauf als Arzt auf dem Schiff. Dieses aber gerät in einen Sturm. Gulliver sucht mit fünf anderen Besatzungsmitgliedern Schutz in einem Ruderboot, das jedoch kentert. Der Schiffbrüchige erreicht einen Strand und schläft dort ein; die anderen Besatzungsmitglieder sieht er nie wieder. Als er aufwacht, findet er sich an Armen, Beinen und Haaren mit Schnüren an den Boden gefesselt. Sechs Zoll kleine Winzlinge klettern auf seinem Körper herum. Gulliver gelingt es, die Fäden an seinem linken Arm zu lösen, worauf die Winzlinge eine Salve von Pfeilen auf ihn abfeuern, woraufhin er beschließt, sich besser ruhig zu verhalten. Die Zwerge bringen ihm zu essen und zu trinken und ziehen ihn sodann auf einem Holzrahmen in ihre Stadt, wo er an einem vor längerer Zeit aufgegebenen Tempelgebäude angekettet wird. Die vier Reisen Gullivers: Nach Liliput, ins Land der zwergenhaften Liliputaner Nach Brobdingnag, ins Land der Riesen Nach Laputa, Balnibarbi, Glubbdubdrib, Luggnagg und Japan Ins Land der Houyhnhnms und Yahoos Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)

Pook Press celebrates the great Golden Age of Illustration in children's literature. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1850s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was one of the premier illustrators of the early 20th Century. He illustrated many books, the first of which was published in 1893. Throughout his career he had developed a very individual style that is was to influence a whole generation of children, artists and other illustrators. His haunting humour and dreamlike romance adds to the enchantment and fantasy of children's literature.
