Benson's Book Covers - OTHER WORKS - Non-Fiction E.F.Benson (Sketch by Patrick Hamill)
Back to "Home"
Back to 'Covers' front page
Fred was a most prolific author, with well over 80 books to his credit by the time he died in 1940.  Here are some of those books, but not all; if you have an E.F.Benson cover or dust jacket not shown here (other than the Black Swan paperbacks, which appear elsewhere on this web page!), please email us!
We are particularly interested in surviving dustjackets of early or first editions; also in foreign language editions.

Special Thanks must go to "Miss Leg" for finding a great many of the following images on eBay, and to "Queen Charlotte's Mittens" for sending in so many from his personal collection!
PLEASE NOTE!  This page contains a lot of scanned images - it can, therefore, take some time to load.  Please be patient!
