Swift’s classic has a new home

Spectacular volumes enhance special collections

Capt. Lemuel Gulliver has found safe harbor in the John P. Raynor, S.J., Library. Thanks to Dr. William Schull, Arts ’46 and Grad ’47, and Victoria Schull, a 1726 edition of Jonathan Swift’s Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World (better known as Gulliver’s Travels)  is now part of University Special Collections. Marquette is the only library in Wisconsin, and one of just 20 in North America, to own early editions of the classic.

That spectacular volume is only part of the Schulls’ gift. They gave Marquette a collection of antiquarian books, including Emmanuel H.D. Domenech’s Seven Years’ Residence in the Great Deserts of North America (1860), a two-volume set illustrated with 58 hand-tinted maps; essays addressing slavery in North America; and Isaac Newton’s Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy.
