Very Good, Jeeves - P. G. Wodehouse 1951 - Herbert Jenkins, London - Seventh Printing ‘When the jolly old storm clouds rolled up. Bertie Wooster turned instinctively to his man Jeeves. Bertie’s friends likewise. Jeeves judgement was infallible, likewise his taste in neckwear.’

If ever Bertie needs extracting from the soup, he must call for Jeeves.

Eleven short stories. Jeeves saves Bertie from being secretary to a cabinet minister, and saves both from a nesting swan on a lake-isle in a rainstorm. He destroys an offensive vase that Bertie has bought, and takes away an offensive suit of plus-fours new from his tailors. He knocks out Oliver Sipperley with a putter to the back of the head, annuls Bertie's love for Bobbie Wickham, ditto for Gwladys Pendlebury, rescues Bingo Little and Tuppy Glossop twice each, and saves Bertie's Uncle George from a mésalliance.
