Further Information
Baynard Kendrick was in Philadelphia on 8th April 1894 and passed away in 1977. His publishing history is a chronological mess I am afraid. All the books were first published in the USA but UK editions were published out of sequence. Our list is for the English editions but ordered by original publishing date, thus keeping the books in the sequence the author intended. His two main series characters were Captain Duncan Maclain and Miles Standish Rice.
