WODEHOUSE, P.G. The Swoop! Or How Clarence Saved England, A Tale of the Great Invasion

Alston Rivers Ltd., 1909.

First edition. Original pictorial wrappers printed in orange and black. Illustrated with cartoon style drawings by C. Harrison. A very good copy indeed with a short split to the joint at the base of the spine neatly repaired and minor wear to the spine ends. Internally exceptionally clean. An unusually fresh copy, seldom encountered in such a well preserved state. Housed in quarter morocco clamshell case.

A short comic novel, issued only in paper wrappers, to be sold as cheap fiction at train stations and news stands. Due to its construction very few copies have survived in anything like acceptable condition.
