Beningfield's English Farm by Gordon Beningfield (£10.50)Publisher: Selectabook — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0670811912]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges with a small crease to the foot of the upper panel. Price Clipped.Description: From the cover: “Gordon Beningfield has built up a reputation as Britain’s leading countryside artist through his meticulous and affectionate paintings and drawings of the rural scene.

His subject is the English countryside as it has been, should be, and sometimes still is. In Beningfield’s English Farm, which is published ten years after his first book, he has set out to celebrate that most characteristic feature of the countryside, the traditional farm and its animals.

The animals were not too difficult to find, at least in ones and twos. Here are such magnificent creatures as the White Park bull and the Gloucester Old Spot pig, not to mention Lincoln Longwool sheep, Suffolk Punch horses, Light Sussex chickens, and Golden Guernsey goats. But because the numbers of these animals have so dwindled, many of them are now classified as rare breeds and are preserved in farm parks where they have become a major attraction.

The proper surroundings for the animals were much more difficult to find, as the traditional small mixed farm is now something of a rarity, and it is even more unusual to find unspoiled farm buidings. While the animals are painted from life, the fields and farmyards in which they are placed have often found their inspiration in Gordon Beningfield’s memories of the English countryside of forty years ago. At the very least, many of the settings have had to be restored in his pictures to their original state.

The product of this effort is a richly nostalgic portrait of all the inhabitants of the traditional English farm: not just cattle and sheep and pigs, but working horses and donkeys, chickens pecking around in the barn yard, ducks by the pond, lop-eared rabbits, a shepherd’s dog that is very unlike the collies of today and, of course, a ginger torn on the prowl.

Gordon Beningfield’s pictures, over a hundred of them, show his work at its finest, mixing evocative landscapes with portraits of animals, some imposing like the Gloucester bull, some charming like the English nanny goat and kid, some humorous like the Middle White pig. These, and many others, will delight Beningfield’s many admirers and all other lovers of the countryside.”

I Must Collect Myself: Choice Cuts from a Long Shelf Life by Maureen Lipman (£9.50)Publisher: Simon & Schuster — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1847373488]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; 2nd printing. [First Published: 2010]

From the cover: “A sparkling collection of stories, reminiscences and rather good jokes, interspersed with inventive character monologues, for you to try, she hopes, at home, I Must Collect Myself is Maureen Lipman at her wittiest.

Together with twenty-one monologues, introducing some unforgettable characters — the excitable wannabe auditioning in Brittney’s Got Talent, Sheila the unintentionally smutty art tutor, the bitter American army wife drowning in the English home counties, Maureen has added many wonderful new pieces about her unpredictable life alongside some of her best Guardian newspaper columns. She also introduces us to her yodelling, barkless dog, Diva; attempts to auction Jeffrey Archer; has dinner with the Bishop of Rangoon; and shares her first hit musical at a chocolate factory. On the way, she gives us the inside story of playing an alien in Doctor Who; a night of cabaret to raise money for a statue of Spike Milligan in East Finchley; and eccentric adventures of the romantic variety.

The stories may be new but the astute take on life remains as sharp as ever. Maureen muses on the Eondon bombings, gets angry with road hogs, prays for lost chickens in Notre Dame, grieves for her late husband, Jack, admires Aung San Suu Kyi’s steadfastness, falls for a snowy owl and ponders ‘Princess Di’s memorial wet patch’.

Maureen Lipman’s I Must Collect Myself is as clever, funny and acute as the woman herself.”
