(1936) Annals of Maychester, 363 pp.

(1939) Tales from the Saxon Shore, 268 pp.

Samuel Levy Bensusan (1872 – 1958) was an English-born author, playwright and expert on country matters. He was born in Dulwich and died aged 86 at Hastings, and was the son of a Jewish feather merchant. In 1906, Bensusan cemented his connection with the county by acquiring a 50 acre farm near Great Easton, not far from Easton Lodge the home of Lord and Lady Warwick. Near neighbours also included H.G. Wells, Thomas Hardy and R.D. Blumenfeld (Editor of the Daily Express) and Gustav Holst who lived for a time at Thaxted and developed an interest in folksong there. Bensusan was in contact, not only with these luminaries, but many others as is evident in letters to people such as Rudyard Kipling, Adrian Bell, Sidney Olivier and others who had an interest in land use, agriculture and country issues.

For those interested in rediscovering this now overlooked "East Anglian Thomas Hardy", this set of books is an excellent starting point and a very reasonable price.
