Vol. III were both popular addendums. I rehearse these bibliographic details because their pattern of conﬂicting and heterogeneous variation around a shared core text neatly doubles (and, I suspect, further licensed) readers’ propensity for conceiving of Gulliver as a bundle of potentially contradictory but not ultimately self-canceling possibilities.
