The Intrusion of Jimmy

New York: W. J. Watt, 1910. First Edition. Just shy of very good. Presented by the author to a contemporary writer, “To Charles Neville Buck from P.G. Wodehouse (Death to Seth).” Buck, hardly remembered these days, wrote novels, and presumably shorter magazine pieces, on his native Appalachia. The cursed “Seth” in the inscription is clearly the agent Seth Moyle, who unsuccessfully represented Wodehouse for a short time, as well as, almost certainly, Buck. While undated, the inscription is in what we recognize as Wodehouse’s earlier hand.
