ENTER PSMITH. P. G. Wodehouse. ENTER PSMITH.
New York: Macmillan Co. 1935. First U.S. edition. This copy was definitely printed with U.S. sheets as the copyright page states it was printed in the U.S., but it doesn't match bibliographer McIlvaine's description [A12d1]. We therefore assume it is an unrecorded variant--at least in our experience--of the first U.S. edition. Title page reads "ENTER | PSMITH" versus "ENTER PSMITH," and the note on the copyright page differs slightly from McIlvaine's description ("Printed ... by" versus "Published ...at"). Endpapers and page edges very faintly foxed, otherwise near fine in somewhat edgeworn dust jacket that is nonetheless attractive (spine slightly darkened, eighth-inch chipped from head affecting "ENTER" in title, closed horizontal tear near bottom of spine, small chip from base, rubbed chips at corners, creased closed tear at top of front panel affecting "PSMITH"). dust jacket price is $2.00. VARIANT.
