Ellery Queen - Identifying Foreign books

One of the biggest problems in my continuous search for Foreign covers for Ellery Queen editions is not so much the language. As long as the Latin letters are used everything is pretty basic. The problem starts when an other alphabet is used: Greek, Hebrew, Cyrillic and Arabic alphabet come to mind (I'm not even including Eastern symbols). ..

The exact original titles are the problem. For translation of the accompanying text I used a translation 'robot'. This sometimes results in  enigmatic jibbirish or simply to generic a title.
It proofs to be a pleasant challenge in itself... The game's afoot! If you have suggestions or similar covers do contact us!

Ellery Queen - International editions

There is a wanted page up in Dutch, so if you're up to it go there.

If you have crisp copies of editions in your country and could mail me a good scan (height of the image at least 768). The Q.B.I. section will point out which scans I have or don't have.
Perhaps in some foreign editions there might be some special artwork which might be considered special? Let us know!

But it's not all scans we want. We have been well aware of EQ international appeal and it is a painstaking work to catalogue all foreign titles on the correct page of it's original volume. If you could contribute here please do.
Again the indepth pages in the Q.B.I. section (Click on a cover and then navigate to the bottom of each page) list the current known international titles.
