Source of book cover jpgs

Could someone please point me to a link where I can
find down-loadable book cover files. My main interest is covers
for public domain books such as are found at Gutenberg or Manybooks.

Thanks for any help

Calibre has a "Fetch Cover Art" function that works quite well. I have no idea where it gets them from though.

Alternatively, just use Google. Type in the title, and then do an image search. You'll get covers.

Search Flickr. It has several book cover pools.
But most of the time a Google image search comes through. If the image you want is too small or of bad quality you can use TinEye Reverse Image Search to look for a better version.

Also you may want to take a look at Cover Browser.

The problem with that is books old enough to be in the public domain come largely before the standard was to have artwork on the covers. This, for example, is the original cover of The Time Machine (from Wikipedia)

And this looks, as far as I can tell, to be the first cover of Tom Sawyer:
