List of Macmillan Collector's Library Editions


In 2015, Pan Macmillan acquired the independent publisher, Collector's Library, who were famed for producing pocket-sized editions of classic literature in hardback form.

From 2016, Macmillan began republishing the Collector's Edition Library with an updated jacket design. Featuring blue cloth hardcover binding, gilded edges and handy ribbon bookmarks, the jackets have been restyled with gorgeous colour endpapers in an exclusive design.

Over 150 titles have been released so far, with even more to be published in the coming months. Several include original illustrations, particularly children's titles (such as Alice in Wonderland, The Little Prince and others), and all include a foreword, afterword or both by a leading writer in their field. These books are absolutely lovely, particularly as they are easy to fit into a pocket or slip into a bag for reading on the move.

Here is a list of published and upcoming titles from the new Macmillan Collector's Edition library, ordered by date of publication. Alternatively, you can download a printable, simplified version here.
