] ] E.F. Benson wrote 6 books in the Lucia series (though one, Miss Mapp, does not feature Lucia at all). They were published between 1920 and 1939. They are: Queen Lucia, Lucia in London, Miss Mapp, Mapp and Lucia, The Worshipful Lucia and Trouble for Lucia.
] ]The whole series has been reprinted in a single volume called Make Way for Lucia which was published in 1977 by Harper and Row (and I think available in paperback now)
] I can only find "Trouble with Lucia" at Bookserve. Does anyone else know if these are still in print?
I have a two-volume collection out of the library at the moment (overdue actually) - Lucia Rising contains Queen Lucia, Miss Mapp and Lucia in London; Lucia Victrix contains Mapp and Lucia, Lucia's Progress and Trouble for Lucia. They were published by Penguin in 1991. Here are the ISBN numbers:
Lucia Rising 0-14-011962-0
Lucia Victrix 0-14-011963-9
Of course this doesn't mean they're still in print, but it's a little later than the edition mentioned by Kathleen.
Janette, who's enjoying them immensely and will get a library fine soon...
