A very good first edition, in the original binding. Foxing to all edges of the pageblock, and to the first and last several pages. Some minor wear to the spine and edges of cover. A previous owner's ex libris plate has been attached inside the front cover. In a fair, unclipped dust jacket, with large chips to top and bottom of spine and minor chipping to top of cover and top corners. Two small tears to the back cover have been repaired with tape on the reverse of the jacket.
Uncle Fred is one of the hottest earls who ever donned a coronet. Or as he crisply puts it, 'There are no limits, literally none, to what I can achieve in the springtime.'
Even so, his gifts are stretched to the limit when he is urged by Lord Emsworth to save his prize pig, the Empress of Blandings, from the enforced slimming cure of the haughty Duke of Dunstable. Pongo Twistleton knows his debonair but wild uncle shouldn't really be allowed at large - especially when disguised as a brain surgeon. He fears the worst. And in yet another brilliant novel by the master of English comedy, Pongo will soon find his fears are amply justified.
