Three of the albums - Mr Pump's Legacy and Destination New York (which together make up one two-part story, The Stratoship H.22), and The Valley of the Cobras, should be available to order through bookshops (you will find that most bookshops are more than happy to order in titles which they don't stock, and have a pretty efficient service for doing this). Alternatively, try one of the dealers in our shop guide
Obtaining The Secret Ray, which contains the other two J,Z&J titles (The Manitoba No Reply and The Eruption of Karamako, again forming a single, two-part tale) may be more problematic, as due to the controversial nature of some of its content (like Tintin in the Congo in that respect), it has only ever been made available in English in a book once, as a collector's item issued by Sundancer (an imprint of Nick Rodwell's company at the time, and now no longer publishing), which had a very limited distribution mainly through the London Tintin shop (who no longer seem to have any stock).
You in all probability will have to look to the second-hand market, such as eBay or ABE Books, to find a copy of that one.
