The Foreign-Language Dig Allen Books

One day, while idly browsing through the Library of Congress' home page, I noticed that the book Captives in Space had been translated into French. As I had no more information to work with, I simply filed away the knowledge and forgot about it.

Recently, a man by the name of Marc e-mailed me and told me that he had all three French translations. It turns out that three Dig Allens were translated and released in France: Prisonniers du Soleil (Captives in Space), Voyage vers Jupiter (Journey to Jupiter), and La Cité Perdue (Lost City Of Uranus).

Marc was kind enough to send me a good number of scans (both cover scans and internals), which I am posting here. If you know anything else about these books, or know of any other foreign Dig Allen reprints, please e-mail me at; I'd like to hear from you!

Update on 5/27/2008: A few days ago someone named Ernesto e-mailed me some scans of Italian translations! I have created links to these images here:
