New in November 2014: We present the full-length serialization of the first of Wodehouse’s transatlantic-romance novels. A much shorter and very different form of the tale was originally published as The Gem Collector in the American magazine Ainslee’s. The full-length novel as printed in the USA under the title The Intrusion of Jimmy has long been available online, though nearly always in somewhat unreliable transcriptions. Slightly revised and expanded for the British market, it first appeared in this Tit-Bits serialization with a pluralized title, then in very similar form appeared in hardback as A Gentleman of Leisure in November 1910, published by Alston Rivers. Later British releases under that title by Wodehouse’s regular publishers were very slightly abridged.
