WODEHOUSE, P.G. The Prince and Betty

Mills & Boon, 1912.

First UK edition. Original red cloth lettered in gilt to spine and black to the upper cover. A very near fine copy, bright and crisp and just a hint of fading to the spine. Owner's name to the front endpaper and date to the rear endpaper. A superb copy.

Originally serialised in Ainslee's Magazine and published by Watt in America, Wodehouse was commissioned by romance publishers, Mills & Boon, to repurpose the work for the British audience. The book was published in May 1912 shortly after the American edition.
This copy has the 32pp catalogue of adverts, which is listed by McIlvaine after the state with no adverts, however there seems to be no evidence of precedence. The catalogue lists 'Spring Announcements' for 1912 and advertises books published at the same time as this one. Further, at least one presentation copy inscribed in July also had the catalogue of adverts.
In our experience one of the scarcest of Wodehouse's novels, particularly so in nice condition.
