First edition, first impression of Wodehouse’s first published book, in the first issue binding (the sheets were reissued in 1915 in a grey-blue cloth binding, lettered in gilt and blue). Scarce in such nice condition.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in silver, trophy motif to front board and spine silver. Housed in a custom blue slipcase. Frontispiece and 9 plates. School prize bookplate to front pastedown (Elmhurst School, South Croydon). A little rubbing to extremities, occasional mild foxing to contents. An exceptional copy.
