WODEHOUSE, P.G. Pigs Have Wings. Herbert Jenkins, 1952.
8vo., original red cloth, lettered in black to spine; with price-clipped dust wrapper depicting a rather smug pig lurking behind a door held open by an obliging butler; pp. 219, [v]; a lovely, fresh example; the jacket vibrant and bright, very lightly rubbed and creased with one very small nick to lower panel; internally lightly offset, first few pages with a now-flattened corner crease.
First UK edition, published just days after the first US of the same name. One of the more intricately plotted of Wodehouse's comic masterpieces, crammed full of the usual absurd plots and quirky characters for whom he was famous. Oh, and pigs. Lots of pigs.
