WODEHOUSE AT WORK A Study Of The Books And Characters Of P. G. Wodehouse Across Nearly Sixty Years. With ALS from the author to fellow Wodehouse biographer Barry Phelps. Stock code: 14204


London: Herbert Jenkins. 1961


First edition, first printing. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little bumping at the top edge. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the rubbed and nicked price-clipped dustwrapper which has a couple of pieces of tape to the underside at the spine tips.




Loosely laid in is an autograph letter from the author over two sides of a single sheet, on his Charterhouse, London letterhead to the Wodehouse scholar and fellow biographer Barry Phelps.
