Dornford Yates (William Mercer, 1885-1960) wrote two different streams of books, overlapping, which were huge best sellers between the Wars.
The first were amusing short stories of an independently wealthy family headed by Bertram "Berry" Pleydell, who lived in a happy world of eternal English sunshine and an unlimited supply of Rolls-Royces.
This is the third short story collection in the "Berry" series. (The second was The Courts of Idleness", which I don't have.)
I have created a cover, using a part of the original hardback cover, and included the family tree which later appeared to clarify the relationship between the various characters.
