The Captain (1900s magazine)


The Captain (1900s magazine)

"The Captain" was a magazine for young boys, published monthly in the United Kingdom from 1899 to 1924.

It is perhaps best known for printing many of P. G. Wodehouse's early school stories, such as many of those featured in the collection "Tales of St. Austin's" (1903). The magazine also serialised several early novels by Wodehouse, including "Jackson Junior" and "The Lost Lambs", which were later combined to form the book "Mike" (1909), and introduced to the world Wodehouse's enduringly popular character, Psmith.
