Abstract

A unique uncancelled copy of Faulkner’s 1735 edition of Swift’s poems was deliberately assembled, at some point after 1735, to preserve the texts that were to have been jettisoned or expurgated. A fresh analysis confirms that the cancellations were designed primarily to avoid re-publishing personal satire and to limit Faulkner’s exposure to prosecution or other governmental interference.
