McBride began book publishing 1912, and founded a London publishing house in 1915. Among the books he published were the later works of Frank Buck, including Buck's autobiography, All In A Lifetime. In 1926 McBride published Thorne Smith's novel Topper, which was the basis for the 1937 screwball comedy Topper (film) directed by Norman Z. McLeod. McBride also published a series of travel books which he himself had written, some under the pen name Robert Medill or Marshall Reid.

McBride and Cabell won the famous obscenty case brought against Cabell's book Jurgen.
