[6]          The front page of the first edition of 'Gulliver's Travels', printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate, in Fleet Street.

    On the left you see the image of Lemuel Gulliver.


    It was drawn by his wife, Mary Burton-Gulliver since, by that time, Gulliver was so mad, he didn't allow anyone else to see him. Note that she was about 50 years old when she discovered her drawing talents!

Why do you find this unbelievable?
