I have an e-book reader now and I was wondering what classic out of print books on diptera I might be able to download. Project Gutenberg has thousands of free to download e-books both fiction and none but I wouldn't know what authors to look out for!

Colyer & Hammond ("Flies of the British Isles", published by Warne) would be my first choice but I doubt that obscure entomological literature is first on their list to scan and make available Wink Sometimes you get people who scan books to PDF and make them available but they do tend to be specific papers & keys but not usually reading books like Colyer & Hammond.
