Louder and Funnier by P. G. Wodehouse with facsimile dust jacket.
Louder and Funnier is a collection of nineteen humorous tales. They were adapted from Vanity Fair publications of the essays between 1914 and 1923. The title is explained by Wodehouse in his introduction. He claims that he borrowed the title from “the old story of the nervous after-dinner speaker” when a voice in the audience demands, “Louder, please”. This was swiftly by another voice requesting, “Louder, please, and funnier”. This copy is in fair/good condition with a facsimile jacket.
