P.G.Wodehouse
SIR PELHAM GRENVILLE WODEHOUSE KBE (/ˈwʊdhaʊs/ ; 15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. Born in Guildford , the son of a British magistrate based in Hong Kong, Wodehouse spent happy teenage years at Dulwich College , to which he remained devoted all his life. After leaving school he was employed by a bank but disliked the work and turned to writing in his spare time. His early novels were mostly school stories , but he later switched to comic fiction, creating several regular characters who became familiar to the public over the years. They include the hapless millionaire Bertie Wooster and his sagacious valet, Jeeves ; the immaculate and loquacious Psmith ; Lord Emsworth and the Blandings Castle set; the Oldest Member , with stories about golf; and Mr Mulliner , with tall tales on subjects ranging from bibulous bishops to megalomaniac movie moguls

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)
