WODEHOUSE, P.G. (author). Company For Henry. London; Herbert Jenkins. 1967.

8vo. Original terracotta linson boards lettered in white to spine, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [vi], 7-221 + [i]; near-fine, the text block a trifle spotted at edges, with mild pushing to head and foot; the unclipped dustwrapper (21s), designed by Osbert Lancaster has some slight warping to the acetate, and darkening to edges; very good.
First U.K. edition, first issue, published in the U.S. six months earlier as The Purloined Paperweight. A typical Wodehousian avalanche of misadventures and escapades centring around a fabulously rare and valuable French paperweight.
