[a good sound book, with just a bit of fraying at top of spine and minor wear to extremities; the jacket is MISSING its front flap, is very faded at the spine with some paper loss at both ends, and has some shallow chipping along the top of the rear panel, but the front panel illustration (undoubtedly also by Rea Irvin, who illustrated the book, but not signed or credited) is still bright and attractive]. (pen and ink drawings) "The town of St. Rocque stood near the coast of France. The Château Blissac stood near the town of St. Rocque. J. Wellington Gedge stood near the Château Blissac. He was reading his mail on the terrace outside the drawing room. A passer-by, given the choice between looking at Mr. Gedge and at the view beneath him, would have done well to select the latter, for this tubby little man constituted the only blot on an impressive landscape." You know it's a Wodehouse book when you're already giggling before you reach the bottom of the first page. Well, at least I do; your mileage may vary.
