Copyright law is very complicated and also varies between different legal jurisdictions.

In the United Kingdom, the basic rule for literary works such as books or plays etc. is 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the death of the author or last surviving author in the case of multiple authors, occurs. So Arthur Ransome's work will be out of copyright in the UK on 1st January 2038. These laws change from time to time so don't make any expensive advance plans for your personally published special edition of Swallows and Amazons until nearer the date.
