About this title
This book does for the novels about the Threepwood family of Blandings and their friends what Geoffrey Jaggard did for the Wooster-Jeeves stories of P.G.Wodehouse in his first book, Wooster's World, which Richard Usborne described in The Times as "butter from a lordly dish". It is nothing less than a complete concordance to the Blandings saga, recently so engagingly translated for B.B.C. television as "Blandings Castle" with Ralph Richardson and Stanley Holloway as the splendidly dotty pair, Lord Emsworth and his butler Beach. It catalogues all the characters, whether blue-blooded or red, lists all the places which they inhabit or visit (see Even Statelier, a survey of English country homes), traces the complex genealogy of the House of Blandings, whose head is the immortal Clarence, 9th Earl of Emsworth, and even has a place for the animals which appear--pride of place is not unnaturally given to Emsworth's champion sow, the Empress of Blandings.
