2 WODEHOUSE, P.G., and Herbert WESTBROOK JASEN, David A. (ed.) WESTBROOK, Herbert Not George Washington : An Autobiographical Novel. First American Edition in dustjacket
Continuum, New York, 1980, ISBN:082640006x 
WODEHOUSE, P.G., and Herbert WESTBROOK. Not George Washington : An Autobiographical Novel. New York : Continuum, (1980). First American Edition. Pp (4),[v]-x,(2),3-205,(9). 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. McIlvaineA9a4. Originally publshed in 1907 by Cassell and Co., London. Jasen has re versed the order of names on the title page to put P.G. Wodehouse first. "Never before published in the United States, this early, autobiographical novel by P.G. Wodehouse aptly describes the perils of a writer's world in London circa 1900. The protagonistan author manquéattempts by any means necessary to establish himself in literary circles. But his subterfuges backfire,his amours come a cropper, and only an ingenious, beguiling denouement sav es his skin. A unique feature of the novel, which foreshadows the techniques of the mature Wodehouse, is his telling of the story from the perspectiveof many characters. Consequently, devoted fans of Plum now have an opportu nity to glimpse a genius stretching, nay perfecting, his narrative powers."(from the dj). Very good in nicked but unclipped dustjacket. 35.00
