Edinburgh: Archibald Constable and co., 1814. First Edition. DESCRIPTION: Jonathan Swift (1667–1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer, poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin.

Regarded as the foremost prose satirist in the English language, he is also known for his poetry.
