The Coming of Bill.

The Coming of Bill.

Herbert Jenkins, 1920.

First edition, first printing with 4pp of ads at rear. 8vo. Red boards with black titles. A very good copy with clean boards with no marks. Light edgewear only. Internally complete and clean. Neat old ink name to endpaper. Endpapers original and unsplit. No marks to textblock edges & none of the usual nasty fading/patchiness to the red spine. A very attractive copy.

Set in New York and Connecticut involves a couple trying to retrieve their "perfect child" from the overbearing Mrs Porter to establish a normal family life; stuffed full of wonderful Wodehousian characters - the bossy aunt, a tetchy millionaire, a good natured boxer and an orotund English Butler.

McIlvaine A23b.
