If you have a book you'd like to see scanned and launched as a project, please feel free to add it below. This space is an effort to organize and track the many requests in the various "Books I'd Like to See" forum topics - the most recent being Books I'd like to see in PG - 2016. The previous thread was Books I'd like to see in PG - 2015.

Content Providers & Project Managers To help you more easily find a requested book that you'd like to work on, the books have been organized into these categories:

Books that have been claimed have been archived on these pages:

(Note 20 Jan 2015 - This is a work in progress, and the pages linked above will be created in the coming days.)

As content is added, folks will probably restructure and rearrange things. That's OK! The point is, we can build something useful and legible together.

Note: Where there is an author's name but no specific works, this usually means "Anything by this author." This list was brought over from the original forum thread, and as such it may not have been categorized correctly. Please be sure to check and double check whether a book is being processed or posted already. Also, some of the books requested have missing details (publication date, publisher, full title, author's full name, etc.), so feel free to add anything that you know or can look up.

  • The Red Web. Boston, 1925.
    • dvdeug notes: "Blair Coan (1883-1939) (It's not listed in 11800, but I don't know how hard it would be to find the author's nationality, especially given the accent that should be over the a in Coan. Good for DP-EU, though, and there's a 1969 reprint that should be just as clearable. A websearch reveals several cites of this books, mainly political rants."

Coleridge, Christabel

  • Charlotte Mary Yonge: Her Life and Letters
    • There's a 1903 edition, and a 1969 reprint (which would be clearable if it's just pictures of the original pages). Not in Google Books. Seems to be a fairly common library holding, should be scannable by someone with access to a major library.

  • The Matriarchate; or, Woman in the Past (1890)

    • "The Police of the House", in Breezy Stories (June 1921)
    • "Nellie's Naughty Nighty", in Breezy Stories (August 1921)
    • Gardner is the author of Perry Mason. It's possible that some of the other early stories found in his bibliography are clearable; he has around 800 renewals from a quick search, and some stuff as early as 1926 was renewed, but a quick glance didn't find anything for his 1923 works.

  • Feeble-Mindedness: Its Causes and Consequences. New York: The Macmillan Company. 1914.
    • This was a very influential work in the US eugenics movement, and is valuable for teaching that history. (I use it in class).
    • Goddard died in 1957, so works may not be clearable in Life+70 countries (doesn't directly affect DP, as it's based in the US, but this may restrict where we can get scans from).
    • [3] is the 1920 edition, and there's also a 1914 edition available, at least to US users.

  • Memoirs of the twentieth century, being original letters of state under George the Sixth

    • Early 18th century science fiction depicting the world in 1998
    • The British Library has this on microfilm: Microfilm. Woodbridge, CT Research Publications, Inc., 1986. 1 reel ; 35mm. (The Eighteenth Century ; reel 4979, no. 5).
    • The British Library has already scanned this book digitally.
    • Research Publications Inc. is now known as Primary Source Media

About the book: Published in 1733, it takes the form of a series of imaginary reports by British diplomats from the year 1997. Their reports cover the imagined history between 1733 and 1997, political intrigues, and some thoughts on the possibility of constructing an engine for a journey to the moon. In other words, many of the classic Science Fiction tropes are found here in an early form. Fans of Harry Turtledove or the Space: 1889 role-playing game might like it.

There are some gaps in the page numbering, but it seems that these aren't actually missing pages, as the story continues unbroken across the gaps. (No, I have no idea what the publisher was up to :-)) On some pages, the BL scans crop close to the edge of the text (tight binding), but looks OK.
