Gulliver in a Miniature Boat

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The queen had built for Gulliver a first rate boat by the joiner for the palace. It was a miniature, to fit his size, but had all the tackling necessary for both rowing and sailing. Gulliver sailed it in a 300 foot trough placed at the edge of the palace wall where he entertained her majesty and her friends. Here he is seen sailing with the wind provided for him by their fans and a child’s breath.
