Gulliver runs through tall corn plants as gigantic figures can be seen in the background
He appeared as tall as an ordinary spire steeple [...] I was struck with the utmost fear and astonishment, and ran to hide myself in the corn.

Description

A tiny Gulliver runs and leaps through corn (or wheat?) stalks as tall as trees while gigantic figures can be seen looming in the background.
The caption reads in the French edition: Il était haut comme un clocher… effrayé, je courus me cacher dans un champ de blé.
