I would also add:

Comparatively, it's a small collection, but the owner
has told me he is willing to share his texts. (One has

Once, when I already had a text done through DP (of poetry by William
Henry Drummond) he shared his version of the text with me, so I
could do a comparison to help find errors. I did get the impression
though, that he would not regularly open up his copy-protected PDF
files for anyone else.
