My Man Jeeves

WODEHOUSE, P.G.

THE FIRST JEEVES BOOK IN DUSTWRAPPER

WODEHOUSE, P.G. My Man Jeeves

Newnes, 1919.

First edition. Original red brown cloth with black lettering in pictorial second issue dustwrapper marked 2/-. A clean, near fine copy, in a near fine dustwrapper, which shows some light wear to the corners and some browning to the spine, but is otherwise a very well-preserved example of this rare dustwrapper.

The book that introduced Jeeves, the perfect gentleman's gentleman, to the world. The book appears to have been originally issued in May 1919 as part of the 1/9s series. When, in late 1919 or early 1920, inflation caused Newnes to replace this series with their 2/- series, it would appear that all unsold copies were thence issued with a newly priced jacket (as here), prior to being reprinted in a slightly larger format in July 1920. Only one copy is known in the 1/9 dustwrapper and well preserved copies in the 2/- are very rare.
