Foreign Nancy Drew Books

     Recently I visited McKay Used Books with my friend and found seven foreign Nancy Drew books! According to Lea Fox from, Nancy Drew books have been discovered in 33 different countries and translated into "26 languages (27 if you count the Queen's English as a foreign tongue)."

     The books I bought were from the Classic series. They were printed in Great Britain from 1975 to 1982. There were 32 books printed in the same format as mine. The text remained the same, but they were printed in a different order. Most of the covers were drawings that are believed to have been done by artist Peter Archer. However, because these books were printed at the same time the 70's Nancy Drew television show was airing, some of the covers are pictures from the show.

My books (#6, 7, 9, 17, 20, 21, and 21)
