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.
