Out of copyright ebooks/writers you'd most like to see digitized?

Here are a few of my recommendations/authors. All of these should be freely available, but some are completely AWOL, and others are out there on the Web, but in dismally illegible formats (shame on you, Archive.org).

Admittedly, this list reflects my prejudice towards epub. But the other versions in many cases aren't much better.

Ronald Firbank
Frederick Rolfe/a.k.a. Baron Corvo
Edmund Wilson - Axel's Castle is available from Archive.org, but the epub version is terrible
Walter de la Mare - classic ghost story author, but most of his classics are nowhere to be seen
August Strindberg - also available mostly in dismal facsimiles
George Macaulay Trevelyan - great British historian also available from Archive.org only in terrible epub versions


Anyone else have some suggestions?
