Catalogue Note

The White Feather, P.G. Wodehouse's eighth novel, was first published in 1907 in book form by A. & C. Black. Set at Wrykyn school, it concerns cowardice in a street brawl and redemption in the boxing ring. The third illustration was also adapted for the upper cover design of the first edition.
