Use CTR-F to search for your for your paramaters. Set .jpg as the extension. Select your ebook directory. Limit the dates if you so desire. When it finishes you'll see it has found x hundreds (thousands) with the name cover.jpg. Select show in thumbnails. When it shows the thumbnails, select them all CTRL A, and then File > Create Contact Sheet. Set your parameters there for how you want it to show (page size, rows/columns) and then save the output as a jpg. Like I said it takes seconds even scanning my directory of 15000+ books.
If you were minded you could have IrfanView bulk copy & rename all those cover.jpgs using the parent directory names to another directory and create your Contact Sheet there - come to think of it you can probably do it within the context of creating the Contact Sheet.

Thanks robin58, I stand utterly humbled. Fantastic, been trying to do this for ages and failing miserably. Just followed your method and did the whole catalogue in a few minutes.
Many thanks indeed.
All the best to you
