The Luck of the Bodkins - P. G. Wodehouse

1935 - Herbert Jenkins, London - First Edition, first state, in later issue dust jacket
Things on board the R. M. S. Atlantic are terribly, terribly, complicated.

A lovely bright copy of the first edition, in scarce later issue dust jacket (matching the first issue jacket, with the exception of the text to the flaps).

Monty Bodkin loves Gertrude, who thinks he likes Lotus Blossom, a starlet, who definitely adores Ambrose, who thinks that she has a thing for his brother, Reggie, who is struck by Mabel Spence, sister-in-law of Ikey Llewellyn (movie mogul, Ambrose's prospective employer and reluctant smuggler), but hasn't the means to marry her. With well-meaning but unhelpful ship's steward Albert Peasemarch and a toy mouse with a screw-top head thrown in for good measure, it will, indeed, take the luck of the Bodkins to sort it all out.

Laughing Gas - P. G. Wodehouse

1936 - Herbert Jenkins, London - First Edition, in second issue dust jacket
When Reggie becomes the third Earl of Havershot, his first enterprise is nearly his last.

A near fine copy of the first edition, in scarce dust jacket designed by Abbey (second issue, priced at 2’6).

His cousin Egremont, a dedicated souse and black sheep, has escaped to Hollywood and is enthusiastically getting ready to damage the family name still further. Hot on his tail, Reggie is about to talk sense into him, but an agonizing toothache drives Reggie to the dentist instead. Something very strange happens when he finds himself face to swollen face with child star Joey Cooley. Under the influence of laughing gas, a cosmic transfer takes place, leaving Reggie's mind in Joey's body and vice versa. And the world looks very different through Joey's eyes.

The Clicking of Cuthbert - P. G. Wodehouse

1922 - Herbert Jenkins Limited, London - First Edition
‘ “What earthly good is golf? Life is stern and life is earnest. We live in a practical age. All round us we see foreign competition making itself unpleasant. And we spend our time playing golf! What do we get out of it? Is golf any use? That's what I'm asking you. Can you name me a single case where devotion to this pestilential pastime has done a man any practical good?"
The Sage smiled gently. "I could name a thousand."
"One will do."
"I will select," said the Sage, "from the innumerable memories that rush to my mind, the story of Cuthbert Banks”.’

And thus begins the first edition of this wonderful and agreeable set of ten golfing stories, perfect for those days when you feel mashed by your Mashie.

‘The title story one of the most famous and funny golf stories ever written. If the literature of golf is not famed for the quality of its fiction, it is not the fault of Mr. Wodehouse’ – Donovan & Murdoch,
The Game of Golf.
