dorty Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 The unabridged Gulliver's Travels, written in 1721. A great read, with wonderfully descriptive language. It also has what must be one of the earliest euthemisms: "I had for a number of hours been extremely pressed due to the necessities of nature". In other words, having a dump.
