"The prospect of having to approach Mr. Duff, his dyspeptic trustee, for the necessary financial assistance with which to get married, frankly appalled that impecunious young peer,Lord Holbeton. But Sally, to whom he had so recently become engaged, suffe red no such fear ; she knew what she wanted and was prepared to go out and get it. She volunteered to deputize for her fiance and beard the man-eatingDuff in his den. The interview was brief. For nearly fifty years old Duff had been proof against attacks on his bank-roll and feminine charms, and itlooked as though Sally would have to admit defeat. But even the strongest of men have their weaknesses. Duff had his, and a bargain was struck. On the face of it it sounded a straightforward arrangement; but the unexpected turned up in the persons of the irrepressible Joss Weatherby, " Mugsy *' Steptoe, the crap-shooting bruiser, and Chibnall, the over-zealous butler..."

"Being the head of Kay's brought little honour and absolutely no joy, as Fenn knew only too well from experience. All attempts toquell the little monsters inhabiting the most unpopular house at Eckleton were constantly thwarted by Mr. Kay himself, and it was therefore no wonderthat Fenn availed himself of a heaven-sent opportunity to humiliate the ma levolent master both publicly and uproariously at the school concert. It was because of this that Kennedy, of the well-loved Blackburn's house, returned from the summer holidays to find himself transferred to Kay's as its newhead. Filled with cold horror at the prospect before him, he soon found th at it was somewhat like taking over the running of Hades while Mephistopheles sat back and watched. He had the distinct impression that the entire house was conspiring to undermine his authority. And what was worse, his erstwhile friend-—the deposed Fenn— had become not only truculent but also noticeably uncooperative. In the face of all the odds, however, Kennedy squared his shoulders and set about the grim task of giving Kay's a new image." - (from the dj).

"Mervyn Potter was filmland's biggest heart-throb since Valen-tino. He admitted it, and modestly took the view that his irresistible appeal bespoke certain success for the stage production of Sacrifice in which he was shortly to appear. Altruistically, he urged Cyril (Barmy) Fotheringay-Phipps to invest his modest fortune in this cast-iron venture and Barmy, who liked the idea of making a lot of money very fast, needed no further prompting. He presented himself to Joe Lehman of Lehmac Productions just at the moment when that impresario was bemoaning the loss of hisprincipal backer. Joe welcomed Barmy like a brother. But in the course of negotiations it became apparent that not everyone viewed the enterprise with the same optimism as Mervyn and Joe. Indeed, one competent critic condemned it in such vigorous terms that had it not been for the incidence of the delectable ' Dinty' Moore, Barmy might well have passed up this opportunityof becoming a theatrical tycoon. But love is a powerful spur. Barmy plunge d, and in doing so demonstrated that affairs of the heart and high finance can be made to combine in sweet and opulent harmony.

WODEHOUSE, P.G. Doctor Sally. (London) : Barrie & Jenkins, (1978). Barrie &Jenkins Reissue. Pp. (6),7-126,(2). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering t o spine. See McIlvaine A46a7. "The impact of Dr. Sally Smith on the mind ofthe average male was one of awed reverence. She knew it, but saw no reason to subscribe to the popular belief that a lady doctor must look like a gar goyle with steel-rimmed spectacles and a wash-leather complexion. But Sallywas always strictly professional. She had no time for men — except at the end of a stethoscope - and was particularly censoorious of idle young men like Bill Bannister, whose predisposition to fall in love with every pretty girl was the talk of the county. Forsaking all others, Bill fell for Sally,hook, line and sinker. Yet Sally appeared deaf to his wooing — especially when the brassy Lottie Higgmbotham bounced upon the scene all set to give her celebrated 'woman scorned' act. 'Mr. Wodehouse,' said The Field, 'is thebest of doctors, the best of tonics.' Onlv Bill Bannister is lilely to qua rrel with this verdict and his interest in doctors was essentially biased."(from the dj). Very good in lightly browned, price-clpped dustjacket. 25.0 0

"When Jim Thomson left a book of notes, of vital importanceto his impending examination, in the school sports pavilion which housed t he silver sports trophies, he had no idea how complex and difficult a situation it would provoke. To Jim, with his innate sense of adventure and sporting interest, it seemed clear that the only course to take was to extricatehis notes by means of a simple burglary. So that evening after lock-up he picked his way stealthily through the playing fields and hurled the largeststone he could find through the nearest window. There was a sickening cras h, loud enough he thought, to bring the whole school down on him, followed by a prolonged rattle as the broken pieces of glass fell to the ground. Then something rather queer ocurred . . . a thud, quite quiet, as it someone had jumped from a height onto the grass. Jim froze as he heard the sound of running footsteps, expecting every moment to see a form loom up beside him in the darkness. Then the footsteps became fainter. Slowly it dawned on himthat he had disturbed another burglar, whose interest could not possibly b e confined to the book of examination notes." (from the dj).

"Sheen was a studious if rather slothful young fellowwho found little to hold his interest in the fanatically popular school ga mes. He did have a flair for fives but no-one, besides the Games Master, deemed it a worthwhile challenge to take him on. It wa s hardly surprising, therefore, that when presented with a situation that demanded a high degree of school spirit and physical effort Sheen was found wanting. In fact so great was the resulting hue and cry within the school that he became, in a word, an outcast.. This rather vicious treatment, peculiar to certain little boys, proved sufficient to shake even Sheen to action. And, powered with a formidable inclination, he set in motion a remarkable succession of events leading him to unqualified triumphs. Behind this seemingly effortless performance of story-telling lies an infinite skill and a splendid kindly wisdom—the hallmark of Britain's chief laughter maker for over half a century, the creator of Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, P.G.

He was to take over as head of his house, with all the privileges such a position involved, he was in the sixth form, had made the 1st XV and now as Captain of the house XI it seemed he had a good chance of capturing the coveted cricket cup. Bu t on the very first day of term something quite unforeseeable and, as it turned out, completely disastrous occurred. He received a letter from his aunt telling him to meet his uncle at Horton railway station the following day. Nothing unusual in that one might suppose, but when the train arrived at the appointed time it left just three passengers behind on the platform. One appeared to be a woman approaching sixty, the second a smallish girl of ten, the third a young lad wearing a top hat and clutching a good deal of baggage. Surely none of these could qualify as his uncle, he thought. But Gethryn was to learn that afternoon just how misleading first impressions can be. Wodehouse's seemingly effortless performance in relating this story, sotypical of all his best books for boys, conceals the skill that was later to earn him universal acclaim as the master of verbal ingenuity and the comic situation." - (from the dj).

Attentive students of the Wodehouse canon will recall that Mr Butterwick made it a condition of Monty's betrothal to Gertrude that Monty would hold down a job for ayear, which more or less sank any chance of the liaison coming to a fruiti on; but Monty succeeded in blackmailing Mr Llewellyn into giving him a job.Now, with the conditions plainly satisfied, Monty confronts Mi Butterwick to claim the hand of Gertrude, his return to London should, he feels, be inthe style of a Roman triumph. But Hell hath no fury like a flummoxed Butte rwick, and the Bodkin road to happiness is arduous and pitfalled through and through." (from the dj).

"Bertram, last of the Woosters, travelled down from London to "Wee Nooke" at the command of his peevish uncle Percy and, incidentally, to allow the inscrutable Jeeves the pleasure of angling in the nearby trout stream. The events that followed his arrival can onlybe described as the Steeple Bumpleigh Horror. Steeple Bumpleigh was a quie t English hamlet until Bertie and Jeeves burst upon the scene and became immediately involved in a broken wedding engagement, the theft of a policeman's uniform, a fancy dress ball, international finance, and general confusion. It was unfortunate, to say the least, that Florence Craye decided she would rather marry Bertie than her crew-man fiance, G. D'Arcy (Stilton) Cheesewright, who, besides being a jilted lover, was a member of the local constabulary. It was also said that Uncle Percy took such a dislike to Boko Fittleworth, one of Bertie's friends, and would not allow his engagement to "Nobby" Hopwood, his ward. Many other exasperating compli cations faced Bertie, and even Jeeves showed signs of weakening before he rallied for the tremendous climactic feats of diplomacy which brought Bertie's country visit to an end."

First published by Methuen& Co. in 1914 as part of the volume The Man Upstairs. "Stories of King Art hur's Round Table usually sugeest that all the knights associated with thatfamous piece of furniture were strong, manJy and handsome. Not, according to P.G. Wodehouse, Sir Agravaine: "His muscles, though he had taken three correspondence courses in pnysical culture, remained distressingly flaccid. His eyes were pale and mild, his nose snub, and his chin receded sharply from his lower lip, as if Nature, designing him, had had to leave off in a hurry and finish the job anyhow. The upper teeth, protruding, completed the resemblance to a nervous rabbit." How this sad and lonely misfit found both fame and love is the subject of one of P.G. Wodehouse's best stories. A delightful tale, it abounds in the descriptive skill and stylistic fireworks which are Wodehouse hallmarks. This edition has been illustrated by Rodger McPhail, whose brilliant work has earned him a leading place among the younger generation of artists and illustrators. No-one who appreciates fine humorous writing or illustrating will be able to resist such a feast." (from the dj).

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
