"The Inimitable Jeeves" is a semi-novel collecting Jeeves stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the U.K. by Herbert Jenkins, London, on May 17 1923, and in the U.S. by George H. Doran, New York on September 28 1923, under the title "Jeeves".

Overview

Many of the stories had previously appeared in the Strand Magazine in the UK between 1921 and 1922; one section, "Jeeves and the Chump Cyril", appeared in The Saturday Evening Post in the U.S. in 1918. It was the second collection of Jeeves stories, after "My Man Jeeves" of 1919; the next collection would be "Carry on, Jeeves", in 1925.

When first printed, the book was a semi-novel divided into eighteen chapters; it is now more commonly printed with several of the chapters combined to form eleven independent stories.All of the short stories are connected and most of them involve Bertie's friend Bingo Little, who is always falling in love.
