Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. The book became popular as soon as it was published. John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery."  Since then, it has never been out of print. Cavehill in Belfast is thought to be the inspiration for the novel. Swift imagined that the mountain resembled the shape of a sleeping giant safeguarding the city.

So, this copy of Gulliver's Travels does not include Parts 3 & 4! Half of the story is missing. I don't know why or how this would have happened, but it ends with the conclusion of Part 2 which is quite abrupt, as there is obviously more story to tell!
I did enjoy the first two parts. This is a fantastic piece of work, but this is not the copy that you want to buy. There is another free copy available here that has the entire story, which is well worth the read!!
Really enjoying it, half way through.
A wonderfully written satire that is still applicable today.
