Summer Lightning - P. G. Wodehouse 1929 - Herbert Jenkins, London - First Edition, in later (1951) dust jacket Once a man of the Hon. Galahad Threepwood's calibre and reputation starts talking pen and writing Reminiscences, the nobility and gentry of all England recall past follies committed in his company and tremble.
