Achetez neuf ou d'occasion This passage describes the rebellion in Lindalino (or “double lin”, meaning Dublin), a thinly disguised allegory of the Irish resistance to the importation of William Wood’s halfpence in the mid-1720s. In modern editions, Sympson’s “Publisher to the Reader” almost always precedes the main narrative, just as it did in Motte’s and Faulkner’s editions. One scholar argues that Motte’s edition employs typographical devices conventional to the travel narratives of Swift’s day, and so reproducing these might evoke this context.16 Indeed, Motte’s editions contain frontispiece portraits of Gulliver, a practice continued by Faulkner. In this approach, the editor would attempt to identify and remove “corruptions” to the text imposed by those other than the author. The Lindalino episode does not appear in Faulkner’s text, though as far as we know, Swift wrote it to be included. “Gulliver vexeth me more than any.”1 When Jonathan Swift wrote this sentence, he was referring not to his narrator, but to the problems that beset his efforts to publish a new edition of Gulliver’s Travels.

The editor’s task is even more complicated since the readings in Ford’s interleaved copy and Faulkner’s edition do not always agree, and such discrepancies force an editor to judge each variant in terms of final authorial intention and non-authorial intervention. Though admitting that the enclosed manuscript “may be thought in one or two places to be a little Satyrical”, Sympson hoped Motte would agree to publish it.3 The letter specified strict conditions about how to proceed. Scholars, of course, cannot ask Swift about his work – unless they could travel to Glubbdubdrib and summon Swift’s ghost – and thus have to sort through and interpret the various surviving sources.
