Brock (light, mainly marginal, spotting throughout), original pictorial cloth (spine slightly darkened), the front free endpaper inscribed, "Reginald Sell on his 16th Birthday from his affectionate Uncle Harry 1906." FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, FIRST ISSUE.
McIlvaine A7a: "There is some confusion about the publication date of Wodehouse's first adult novel: the copyright page of the second printing states it was first published July 1906, in a letter George Newnes reported June 1906, while Wodehouse's own records and the English Catalogue give August. The British Museum did not receive a copy of the first printing."
