Description

Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

A c1947 reprint, printed in Holland by Drukkerij Holland N.V., and with 'Joy in the Morning' listed last on Wodehouse's list of works to the front fly leaf. Though 'first printing' is stated to the limitation page, it is not the true first, which was in an orange cloth and printed by Wyman & Sons.

In the original price-clipped dust wrapper.

'Money in the Bank' is a comical novel set in a country house, Shipley Hall, in which a young lawyer takes his first case at law, with the help of the father of his fiancee.

This novel was first published in 1942 in New York, but U.K. publication was delayed until 1946 as Wodehouse was under suspicion of collaboration during World War Two.

P. G. Wodehouse is an influential and very popular humorist author, best known for the creation of his characters Bertie Wooster and his valet, Jeeves. He was a prolific author, publishing more than ninety books.

Two pages of adverts to the rear.
