G. Wodehouse - and sets their work in context. 604 pages including an index. The inside back cover and blank pages show some sign of what appears to be a coffee spill. The jacket shows stains on the inside, back inner flap and back of jacket at the ISBN box. The book is crisp and feels unread. The inside ffep has written on it information on where it was bought, and a large label with the prior owner's name written on. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
