So I thought I'd update people on what's available Loeb-wise for download. I've continued to keep up my list
, and people occasionally email me with additions. A very large number of the older Loebs can now be downloaded from google and/or the archive. In fact, of the first 140 Loebs (the "pre-1923" ones, if you will) all but five
can be downloaded. Of the full 500+ Loebs in existence, almost exactly half are available right now for download. I still don't fully understand the copyright issues, but the Loebs do appear to be fairly unique in that even some of the fairly recent editions make no claim of copyright in them, and both Google and the internet archive uploaders attest that the versions available for download are in the public domain.
If anyone is in a "hunting" sort of mood, the five missing early Loebs are:L006
Catullus -- Catullus. Tibullus. Pervigilium VenerisL033N
Horace -- Volume I: Odes and EpodesL050
Strabo -- Geography II: Books 3-5L073
Aristotle -- Volume XIX: Nicomachean EthicsL077
Seneca -- Volume VI: Epistles 93-124
*Though note that these are the newer titles, and often the older versions were quite different.
