8vo, pp. 316. Original red boards, lettered in red-on-black to front panel and spine. Leading edge uncut. Illustrated endpapers. Illustrated dustwrapper. Slightly cocked, text block age-toned, but a near fine copy in a very near fine dustwrapper with just a little fading to spine.

First edition. Serialised prior to book publication in Collier's in 1930.

'My novel is coming out terrificially so far. I am very nearly half way through. ... My main trouble is that my heroine refuses to come alive, and, what makes it worse is that the second girl is a pippin. I'm afraid the reader will skip all the stuff dealing with the hero and heroine and concentrate on the scenes between the dude and the second girl.'
(PGW to Bill Townend, 8 Jan 1930)

A minor Wodehouse title, but a major copy, beautifully preserved.
