There were six 'Uncle' books in the complete series.
UNCLE (1964)
UNCLE CLEANS UP (1965)
UNCLE AND THE DETECTIVE (1966)
UNCLE AND THE TREACLE TROUBLE (1967)
UNCLE AND CLAUDIUS THE CAMEL (1970)
UNCLE AND THE BATTLE FOR BADGERTOWN (1973)

They were published in the UK by Jonathan Cape and in the USA by Coward-McCann. Jonathan Cape is now part of the Random House Group.

The books are now out of print, but a full list of all the various versions can be found here.

It is possible to pick up the other titles occasionally at second hand bookshops, school fairs or when libraries sell off old books. Otherwise it is possible to get hold of them using book search agencies, I even managed to get hold of an american imprint. This is the booksearch company I use:-

malc.kbs@argonet.co.uk (Kingfisher Book Service)

The books tend to be expensive (from £40-£100) this is partly because search agencies are only really interested in books in good condition (as opposed to reading copies) and first editions. The cost of the books has also been pushed up because they are sought after by fans of the illustrator of the books - Quentin Blake.
