P.G. Wodehouse’s The Inimitable Jeeves was first published in semi-novel form in 1923 in both Britain and the US. However, the individual chapters had already been previously published as eleven separate short stories in The Strand, Cosmopolitan, and The Saturday Evening Post. Several of the stories were broken into pieces to make relatively even chapter lengths, and Wodehouse re-crafted the introductions to give the novel continuity and flow. Wodehouse had previously collected several Jeeves stories in this way in 1919 for My Man Jeeves, and would do so again in 1925 for the collection, Carry On, Jeeves. In forthcoming years, Wodehouse would craft a few more Jeeves and Wooster novels, including Right Ho, Jeeves, The Code of the Woosters, and Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves. The stories would later be adapted for the stage, for radio, and for television.
