Punch (Issue of May 4, 1966) [Includes "Genesis of a Novel" by Wodehouse]
London: Punch Publications Limited, 1966. (Vol. 250, No. 6556). Magazine. Illustrated by (cover illus) Hewison. [light to moderate handling wear; a good sound copy]. (cartoons, photos and graphics; B&W and color ads) Mid-1960s issue of the venerable British humor (sorry, humour) magazine, with numerous cartoons, satirical articles, cultural commentary (including capsule comments on current films and plays; there's a full review of David Lean's DOCTOR ZHIVAGO elsewhere in the magazine). The most notable piece in this issue is Wodehouse's "Genesis of a Novel," in which the then-75-year-old author gives a tongue-in-cheek description of how he set about writing his 1934 book "Thank You, Jeeves," the first full-length Jeeves novel (although he had created the character some twenty years earlier, and had featured him in several dozen short stories).. Very Good+ .
