Fred's Bibliography (Part One)
Back to "Home"
Forward to Bibliography Part Two
The six Mapp and Lucia novels (including the story The Male Impersonator) have been available in reprint since the early 1970s.
U.S. publication dates have generally been given only where they predate those for the U.K.  All but a handful of titles were published in the U.S.A. as well as in the U.K., including all of the novels and most of the biographies but excluding several of the short story selections and most of the Eustace Miles collaborations and sporting titles.
Omnibus editions, such as the U.S. editions of the Mapp and Lucia and the Dodo novels, have not been listed.  Excluded also are such ephemera as catalogues and town guides with introductory notes by E.F. Benson.
In addition, Benson's stories - notably supernatural ones - have been, and continue to be, included in various anthologies.  A humorous tale of his, Aunts and Pianos, not previously included in any of his books of stories, was published in The Funny Bone, edited by Cynthia Asquith in 1928.  Numerous stories and articles of his, many never published in book form, also appeared in a wide variety of publications during his lifetime.
The Bibliography which appears on these pages is based on a list of all the works of E.F.Benson which appeared in The Tilling Society Newsletter 26 and appears here by kind permission of Cynthia and Tony Reavell of The Tilling Society.  It has been slightly edited for .
