322 pp, small 8vo (7 3/4" H), hard cover (yellow/orange boards with green lettering/decoration on spine) - no dust jacket. "(In this novel, P.G. Wodehouse's) characters are new, but they will be long remembered: Mr Bulpitt, the greatest of American process servers; the Princess von und zu Dwornizchek ('the sand in civilization's spinach'); Sir Buckstone Abbott, following the great if difficult tradition of Wodehousian baronets; the beautiful Jane; a long list of memorables. Of the plot itself little need be said. It involves principally the efforts of Mr Bulpitt to practise his profession, under difficulties better read about than experienced; the vicissitudes of young love; the resounding triumphs of virtue. It is Wodehouse at his incomparable best and should need no other recommendation." Interior - small bookstore label on rear pastedown, endpapers browning, pages browning very lightly, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - top of textblock color lightly faded - also has a small dark stain, browning to fore-edge of textblock, darkening to spine and top edges of boards, light to moderate soiling due to handling, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Good .
