@Bookcat -- I will take a whack at Castle Inn. There are only 5 illustrations for this book, and they are gray-scale, but the scan process might have left them pretty fuzzy and blotchy.(sometimes those scans of photogravure pics of paintings almost look as though they were crocheted!) I haven't examined them yet, but maybe we will be lucky.

I've just read this:

Quote:
There's also P.G. Wodehouse's wonderful series of "School" stories, all of which are available on PG. They are, in order:

1. The Pothunters
2. A Prefect's Uncle
3. Tales of St. Austin's
4. The Gold Bat
5. The Head of Kay's
6. The White Feather
7. Mike

"Mike" also introduces the character of "PSmith", and Mike and PSmith went on to feature in a series of later books by Wodehouse.

This thread has tempted me to re-read these books - it's years since I did so, and they're all wonderful stories. They portray life at an English public school* in the years prior to WWI - an event which changed life forever. "To Serve Them All My Days", by contrast, portrays the life of a schoolmaster who returns, shell-shocked, from the WWI trenches.

* "public school" in the British sense of the phrase, which is to say a private boarding school where pupils pay fees to attend.

But can't find the books in the MobileRead library.
I'm assuming that when Harry says, "all of which are available on PG" he means the UK PG, therefore they should be out of copyright in the UK.
If this is the case, I would love it if someone would add these to the library, particularly in a Kindle format.

Thanks lots.

P. G. Wodehouse died in 1975. His works won't be out of copyright in the UK/EU until 2046.
