WODEHOUSE, P.G. and BOLTON, Guy

Bring On The Girls!

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1953

8vo, pp. 278. Original black three-quarter boards, lettered in red and green on blue to spine. Illustrated dustwrapper.

First edition, INSCRIBED BY BOTH AUTHORS IN THE MONTH OF PUBLICATION: 'Lewis Pierson with best wishes from the authors, [sgd.] P. G. Wodehouse and Guy Bolton. October 31st.' (Inscription written by Guy Bolton).

Hugely enjoyable, highly unreliable account of Wodehouse and Bolton's involvement as lyricists and book-writers in the early twentieth century Broadway musical, alongside Jerome Kern, Florenz Ziegfeld, and George and Ira Gershwin, among many, many others. Hardly a historical document -- if there is a choice to be made between a fact and a great story, it's the great story that gets the nod -- but a wonderfully vivid evocation of the early days of Broadway, and how much fun it was to be there.

Copies signed by one or other of the authors surface from time to time; copies signed by both are very scarce.
