Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Korean, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.

Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-French thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of My Man Jeeves by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was edited for three audiences. The first includes French-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or French speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in French in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's French Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in French or English.TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and Advanced Placement are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.

The book, My Man, Jeeves, was first published in 1919, the first book with the name Jeeves in its title. The stories that were collected in the book were published earlier in the Strand magazine in the United Kingdom and in the Saturday Evening Post, Collier's Weekly and Pictorial Review in the United States. This edition reproduces the stories as they appeared in the Strand magazine, allowing today's reader to experience these stories in the same way that their earliest readers did. The book includes four stories about Wodehouse's most beloved characters, Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, illustrated by Alfred Leete, who did a wonderful job of defining the characters of Wooster and Jeeves visually. It also includes four stories about Reggie Pepper, an earlier prototype of Bertie Wooster.

Presenting My Man Jeeves and Right Ho, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse. These classics are part of the P. G. Wodehouse Collection and The Great Books Series by Golding Books, and this book is also available on Amazon in eBook. Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was born in Guildford, Surrey, in 1881. His father Henry Ernest Wodehouse was a magistrate resident in the British colony of Hong Kong, and his mother Eleanor (née Deane) was the daughter of the schoolmaster and author Reverend John Bathurst Deane. His mother was visiting her sister when Wodehouse was born prematurely, and after his baptism (and being named after his godfather Lieutenant-Colonel Pelham George von Donop-yet his nickname came to be "Plum") the two sailed for Hong Kong. Raised by a Chinese nurse along with his elder brothers Peveril and Armine, the siblings returned to England when Wodehouse was two and were cared for by an English nanny in a house adjoining that of Eleanor's parents' (a then-normal arrangement for colony families). Whatever the effect of the distance, Wodehouse developed a love for reading and dreaming up stories and described his childhood as a happy one. He attended Malvern House Preparatory School in Kent, as his father planned for him to have a career in the Royal Navy, but poor eyesight prevented him from pursuing this (he later parodied Malvern House's austerity by having character Bertie Wooster describe his school as a "penitentiary"). In 1894 he followed brother Armine to Dulwich College, and liked the camaraderie there, becoming editor of the school magazine, The Alleynian, and excelling in various sports as well as singing. His father's pension lost value (it fell against the pound, since it was paid in rupees), and, rather than follow Armine to Oxford, Wodehouse was unhappily employed in a junior position at the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank in London. He would write at the end of each working day, and during his two years at the bank he had 80 pieces published in nine magazines, also writing for The Globe newspaper's popular "By the Way" column. With the publishing of his first novel The Pothunters (1902), Wodehouse resigned from the bank to write full-time. Amongst his considerable literary output, his most enduring and beloved characters include the witty monocle-sporting Psmith, idle rich Londoner Bertie Wooster and his highly capable valet Jeeves, the amiable if forgetful Threepwood family head Lord Emsworth and his idyllic home of Blandings Castle, Mr. Mulliner and his improbable recollections in the Angler's Rest pub, and the Oldest Member and his unabating golf stories. It is also notable that, having moved to France in 1934 for tax reasons, in 1940 Wodehouse was taken prisoner at Le Touquet in northern France by the invading Germans and interned for nearly a year. On his release, six broadcasts (comic rather than political) from German radio in Berlin to the United States led to anger in Britain, and he never returned to England. From 1947 he lived instead in the US, taking dual British-American citizenship in 1955. Over the course of his long career, Wodehouse wrote more than 70 novels, 40 plays (including books for musicals), and 20 collections of short stories, as well as assorted articles, autobiographical stories, and poetry. He died in 1975, aged 93, in Southampton, New York.

By P. G. Wodehouse My Man Jeeves is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom in May 1919 by George Newnes. Of the eight stories in the collection, half feature the popular characters Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, while the others concern Reggie Pepper, an early prototype for Wooster. Although the book was not published in the United States, all the stories had appeared there, mostly in The Saturday Evening Post or Collier's Weekly, and in the Strand in the UK, prior to the publication of the UK book. Several appeared later in rewritten form in Carry on, Jeeves (1925), such as "Helping Freddie," which in its later incarnation was called "Fixing It for Freddie" and featured Jeeves and Wooster. The other Reggie Pepper stories were included in the U.S. version of The Man with Two Left Feet (1917). Jeeves and Wooster had first appeared in the short story "Extricating Young Gussie," which appeared in the Saturday Evening Post in 1915, and was included in The Man with Two Left Feet.

La creación más querida de P. G. Wodehouse es el tándem del amo y el sirviente formado por Bertie Wooster, afable y bobalicón, y Jeeves, su ayuda de cámara y protector. Éste es un primer Ómnibus Jeeves, al que seguirán otros. En ¡Gracias, Jeeves!, Bertie Wooster se siente muy disgus­tado. Los vecinos se han quejado de su práctica persisten­te con el banjo y decide instalarse en el campo. Ante esa perspectiva desoladora, Jeeves declina acompañarle. Ber­tie rechaza con altivez el ultimátum y se refugia en la casa de campo de un amigo, pero la paz se verá trastornada hasta alcanzar una situación candente que sólo Jeeves po­drá enfriar. En El código de los Wooster, el embrollo gira en torno a una jarrita de leche con forma de vaca que de­bió de pertenecer al tío Tom pero, mediante una artima­ña, fue adquirida por sir Watkyn Bassett. Bertie se ve obli­gado a robarla y queda a merced de una chantajista. Ahora necesitará la ayuda de Jeeves más desesperada­mente que nunca. En El inimitable Jeeves, el enamoradizo Bingo Little, amigo de Bertie, ha quedado prendado de Mabel, camarera en un restaurante de poca fama, pero el matrimonio parece imposible. Al parecer, un tío de Bingo, solterón y sibarita, es quien se opone a la unión. Bertie Wooster tratará de disuadirlo. Pero allí donde intervienen Bertie y Jeeves, todo suele enmarañarse...

A Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus 'Jeeves knows his place, and it is between the covers of a book.' This is an omnibus of wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories, specially selected and introduced by Wodehouse himself, who was struck by the size of his selection and described it as almost the ideal paperweight. As he wrote: 'I find it curious, now that I have written so much about him, to recall how softly and undramatically Jeeves first entered my little world. Characteristically, he did not thrust himself forward. On that occasion, he spoke just two lines. The first was: "Mrs Gregson to see you, sir." The second: "Very good, sir, which suit will you wear?" It was only some time later that the man's qualities dawned upon me. I still blush to think of the off-hand way I treated him at our first encounter...'. This omnibus contains Carry On, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves and the short stories 'Jeeves Makes an Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'.
