Women in Wodehouse [Plum's Peaches], WODEHOUSE, P. G. [ed. and preface by D.R. Bensen]
160 2978 WODEHOUSE, P. G. [ed. and preface by D.R. Bensen] Women in Wodehouse [Plum's Peaches]
Hardcover Barnes & Noble: NY; c1991,1995; 324 pages Very Good in Very Good dust wrapper 
Quarter cloth binding lightly bumped at faintly sunned spine tail. Previous owner address label on front free endpaper pages 278 to rear endpaper have a single long crease as if pages bent at one time; no binding problems, pages clean and bright. Dust wrapper with creased flaps very lightly edgeworn.; This collection of 14 short stories (publication dates range from 1912-1950) was originally published as "Plum's Peaches". From the dust wrapper: "Think of Wodehouse and you think of Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, of Lord Emsworth, of Psmith, of Ukridge, of Mr. Mulliner, true enough. But, when you come down to it, what motivates these worthies (and unworthies)? Running after them, running from them, wooing them, placating them, rescuing them, being rescued by them-whenever a Wodhouse male goes into high gear, it almost always has something to do with a woman, and probably on too good for him at that.

The work of Pelhem Grenvill ("Plum") Wodehouse displays both a high respect and keen relish for women-from demure damsels to frenzied flappers, his female characters are usually saner than his men (which isn't saying much). Here is an orchard of Wodehouse peaches (and a lemon or two): fourteen short stories featuring the outrageous Bobbie Wickham, the three ex-wives of millionare Vincent Jopp, the extortionate Vera Prebble, the near lethal Celia Tennant, the abundantly ripe Maudie Wilberforce, Cleopatra herself reincarnate in Cora McGuffy Spottsworth, and a basketful more. For those for whom romance is not enough, the stories provide useful instruction on how to avoid dealing with fiery dragons, the consequences of multiple concurrent engagements, weight-loss and beauty tips, how to train a fiance, the perils of ambience, a surefire method for establishing a film career and detailed instructions on imitating a hen laying an egg (a personal fowl). Who could ask for more-if indeed as much?"; Image is actual copy on offer.

167 3532 WOOLF] NUNEZ, Sigrid Mitz : The Marmoset of Bloomsbury
Hardcover HarperFlamingo: 1998; First US Edition Very Good+ in Near Fine dust wrapper  
114 pages; A new book with black remainder mark on top edge.; 'In the summer of 1934, "a sickly pathetic marmoset" called Mitz came into the care of Leonard Woolf. He nursed her back to health and from then on was rarely seen without her on his shoulder. A "ubiquitous" presence in Bloomsbury society, Mitz moved with the Woolfs between their London flat and their cottage in Sussex. She developed her own special relationships with the Woolfs' spaniels, Pinka and Sally, and with various members of the Woolfs' circle, such as T.S. Eliot and Vita Sackville-West. She accompanied the Woolfs on their holidays, including their travels through Europe, and played an important role in helping them to escape a close call with Nazis in Germany. Using letters, diaries, and memoirs, Nunez reconstructs Mitz's life against the background of Bloomsbury in its twilight years. Although a turbulent period marked by the threat of war, the deaths of beloved friends and relations, and Virginia's near breakdown under the strain of finishing her novel The Years, it was nevertheless a time of much happiness and productivity for the Woolfs. Tender, affectionate, and humorous, 'Mitz' provides a glimpse of what Virginia Woolf once described as "the private side of life - the play side", which she believed one's pets represented.' ; Published @ $18.00.
