First American Edition. Anderson dustjacket art. "Psmith, the first of Mr. Wodehouse's most celebrated characters, is already known to the many thousands who have read Psmith in the City and Psmith, Journalist. But his earliest appearance has hitherto been unnoticed by the general public because it occurs in a school story, Mike. At the end of the first part of that book the hero, Mike Jackson, is removed from Wrykyn to the inferior establishment of Sedleigh, and on his first day there he meets Psmith, likewise a new boy, superannuated from Eton. From this point onwards Psmith dominates the scene, and it is this second part of Mike, a complete book in itself, which is reprinted here in an edition that should give it the independent status it deserves". Almost Near Fine, few small brown spots at page fore-edge, short ink address at front endpaper, in Very Good dustjacket, few small edge chips, short closed tears and shelf wear, spine ends nicked.
