WODEHOUSE, P.G. (author). Heavy Weather. London; Herbert Jenkins Limited. 1933.

Thick 8vo. Original mid-blue cloth ruled and lettered in tangerine, in slightly later pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [vi], 7-311 + [8], publisher's catalogue; a very good copy with light external dusting, rubbing, weak vertical creasing to spine, and some dust-soiling and spotting to edges of book block; internally good and sound with foxing to prelims and final leaf, two corners turned, and gentle uniform toning to stock, but otherwise clean; the unclipped dustwrapper (priced 2/6 within an olive-green oval to spine, as with the first edition) with overall dusting and mild rubbing, chipping and fraying to spine ends with short associated tears (longest 2.5cm, now neatly tape-repaired to the inside), 4 further edge tears (longest 3cm to lower flap), and some lateral edge creasing.
First UK edition in book form of the fourth title in the popular Blandings series, published a month earlier in the US by Little, Brown and Co., Boston. This copy of an early Wodehouse title is presented in a slightly later dustwrapper from 1936, which presents as the first edition dustwrapper apart from information to the flaps. Here additional titles are added to the list of works to the front flap up to, and including, Laughing Gas (published September 1936). Information on the rear flap is at variance with that of the first edition dustwrapper.
