The Inimitable Jeeves
1923, first edition and first issue
First edition, first issue (with ten titles listed on verso of half-title). Hardback, bound in the original green cloth with printed titling and design to spine and upper board. 19 × 12.5cm, 255pp.
An early collection of Jeeves and Wooster stories— in which Bertie's terrifying Aunt Agatha stalks the pages, seeking whom she may devour, while Bertie's friend Bingo Little falls in love with seven different girls in succession (including the bestselling romantic novelist Rosie M.
