"It is universally read from the cabinet council to the nursery " remarked Alexander Pope when Gulliver's Travels was published in 1726. One of the unique books of world literature Swift's masterful satire describes the astonishing voyages of one Lemuel Gulliver a ship's surgeon to surreal kingdoms inhabited by miniature people and giants quack philosophers and scientists horses endowed with reason and men who behave like beasts. Written with great wit and invention Gulliver's Travels is a savage parody on man and his institutions that has captivated readers for nearly three centuries. The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Dold Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade providing readers with afford- able hardbound editions of impor- tant works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy- fifth anniversary Random House redesigned the series restoring as its emblem the running torch- bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets bindings and type as well as iu- gurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books at the best prices. As bestselling author and critic Allan Bloom observed: "Gulliver's Travels is an amazing rhetorical achievement. Swift had not only the judgment with which to arrive at a reasoned view of the world but the fancy by means of which he could re-create that world in a form which teaches where argument fails and which satisfies all while misleading none."

Jothan Swift was born in Dublin Ireland in 1667 where he lived for much of his life. He was well known for writing satires and political pamphlets. In 1726 Swift published Gulliver's Travels anonymously and it was an immediate hit reprinting three times that year. Although Gulliver's Travels was written as a satire of human pride not as a children's book it has long been considered a classic for young readers. Jothan Swift died on October 19 1745.
