Adding More Texts

If you have public domain or copy-permitted etexts, I am very willing to add them to this project. If you would like to add to the available corpus of ancient history etexts, see the following list of texts/translations, now in the public domain, but not online. Basically any text or translation published more than 75 years ago is fair game in the US.
