The 11 stories prepared in this collection are the original stories which were all first published between 1918 and 1922 in the magazines Strand and Cosmopolitan, now in the public domain. They were then revised and re-published together as 18 stories in 1923 but these are the original magazine versions. The Inimitable Jeeves was the second collection of Jeeves stories, after My Man Jeeves (1919); the next collection would be Carry on, Jeeves in 1925. All of the stories in The Inimitable Jeeves are connected and most of them involve Bertie's friend Bingo Little, who is always falling in love. It's Wodehouse at his best.
