Sir P[elham] G[renville] Wodehouse KBE (1881 – 1975) was a beloved English author who was one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. They include jolly gentleman of leisure, Bertie Wooster and his sagacious valet Jeeves; the immaculate and loquacious Psmith; Lord Emsworth and the Blandings Castle set; the Oldest Member, with stories about golf; and Mr Mulliner.
UNCOMMON edition with so complete a pictorial dust jacket.
Solid copy with uniform age-toning. Surprisingly complete dust jacket with some soil, considerable wear, fading (especially affecting the hard-to-read title), and a large loss around the top of the dj's spine.
