Tales from the Drones Club [First UK Edition]. ales from the Drones Club [First UK Edition].
"Hutchinson, " "8vo., First UK Edition; terracotta cloth, gilt back, a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper. Published a year after the US edition. With dustwrapper artwork by David Pether (the US dustwrapper was illustrated by Jeff Fisher). Collects 21 short stories; the collection was later reissued as 'The Drones Omnibus' in 1991. The stories were first published as follows: eight in Young Men in Spats (1936); one in Lord Emsworth and Others (1937), four in Eggs Beans & Crumpets (1940), two in Nothing Serious (1950), four in A Few Quick Ones (1959) and two in Plum Pie (1966). This edition is already elusive, especially in this condition."
