The author John D Macdonald c1961

Further Information
John D Macdonald, born 24th July 1916, a very prolific author whose main series character was Travis McGee. This bibliography is less than straight forward. English first editions were published all out of sequence. Some were British paperback originals and later re-released in hardback. We have only listed the true John Dann Macdonald first editions. As well as the above he also wrote 7 novels of a non-criminous nature and some short stories. Although not particularly old many of the English editions are regarded as rare books. They typically had short print runs with most of the copies going to public library, leaving few copies in collectable condition. Normally collecting books of this era only fine copies should be considered by serious collectors. Given the scarcity of some of these titles a little latitude in condition may be required.
