Notes

First edition, preceding the UK edition by six months. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author four days after publication on the front free endpaper, "To Harrison Fisher with the author's compliments, P. G. Wodehouse. May 16 1910". Fisher (1877-1934) was an American illustrator known for his drawings of women, winning acclaim as the successor to Charles Dana Gibson. His work appeared regularly on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine, who published many of Wodehouse's stories, from the early 1900s until his death.
