How it works


A very collectable copy of the sixth Jeeves/Bertie Wooster title. The book is fine and unmarked in bright original orange cloth with minute bumping to two corners. The dustwrapper is near fine, complete, unworn and unclipped. There is a circular teat at the base of the spine which has been internally repaired with archival tape and is all but invisible externally. Also one or two short closed edge tears. A very attractive copy of the 1st. UK edition of this title which was preceded by the US edition but is still the more desirable of the two.
