In the meantime, are there any Bolesław Prus fans in the house? An edition of The Doll (a/k/a, Lalke) would be appreciated; ditto James Thomson's The Seasons or the works of George Darley, John Clare or William Cowper.
George Saintsbury's Historical Manual of English Prosody is a book that every poet should know, but I won't ask for it seriously because it would be hellish to try to format in epub. It seems destined to be reborn as a pdf.
The brain surgery manual I would like will also be copyright protected for many more years.
They do have an acceptable Clare edition at Delphi Classics; the probably much better Carcanet editions are not available as ebooks, unfortunately.
If you are looking for a pdf, the Internet Archive is always worth a shot, as with the Saintsbury.
