1889 - 1979
Dedicated to the Life and Works of
Ion Llewellyn (Jack) Idriess
We are a group of Idriess enthusiasts and collectors and our aim is to make this site the main point of reference for anyone with an interest in collecting his books.
Please feel free to collaborate in our FORUM if you you have any suggestions, questions or material that you wish to add.
To aid the collector, we have included a full Bibliography with information on each of his books, including how to properly identify a first edition, together with indicative current values of his books and ephemera such as magazine articles.
Although we have included a Biography page you will find much more about Idriess himself by visiting our sister-site at www.idriess.com.au, which will be undergoing a makeover in late 2020.
We may be interested in purchasing pre 1940s first editions of his books and some of our members are willing to sell or swap some of their collection. Why not try out our new Idriess Books For Sale page?
