I can understand your interest in promoting works which have
had the recent privilige of ascending into the public domain,
but to start with, I'm looking to work with a couple
texts that are already availible, to reduce the number of
potential challenges occuring at once. :)

However, if you or anyone else is interested in researching to
find books that fit your criteria above, here is a list of
authors to start from....
