John Holt's Books in Translation

This list is compiled from the books I physically own and the contracts I have on file for translations of Holt's books that were actually published. Books with their foreign titles listed are one's that I physically possess; the translation contracts all just have the English title, not the final translated title, so I can only give the publisher, city, and year of publication for those.
