Notes

First edition, first impression. McIlvaine couples this with the notoriously difficult The Globe by the Way Book as being "among the rarest Wodehousiana". Exceptionally scarce in this condition.

Description

Octavo. Original pictorial wrappers, black and white on a red ground, titles to backstrip in black. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery.

Illustrations

Illustrated by C. Harrison.

Condition

Small ownership signature to front free endpaper, spine very lightly cocked, wrappers a little tanned, slightly rubbed and very lightly creased and chipped at corners, neat closed split at the base of the backstrip where it meets the front wrapper. These minor faults notwithstanding a truly exceptional copy of a fragile little publication designed to be sold cheaply to commuters.
