Publisher's Note: "Psmith, the first of Mr. Wodehouse's most celebrated characters, is already known to the many thousands who have read Psmith in the City and Psmith, Journalist. But his earliest appearance has hitherto been unnoticed by the general public because it occurs in a school story, Mike. At the end of the first part of that book the hero, Mike Jackson, is removed from Wrykyn to the inferior establishment of Sedleigh, and on his first day there he meets Psmith, likewise a new boy, superannuated from Eton. From this point onwards Psmith dominates the scene, and it is this second part of Mike, a complete book in itself, which is reprinted here in an edition that should give it the independent status it deserves." Psmith first appeared in the serial, "The Lost Lambs," which constituted the latter half of the novel, Mike (1909). "The Lost Lambs" was later printed in book form as Enter Psmith (1935) and Mike and Psmith (1953), which are the same book but with alternate titles.. Book. Book Condition: Fine. Binding: Hardcover.
