I have found the personal Libraries of

*Henry D. Thoreau
*Abraham Lincoln
*Sir Thomas Browne

Please note - if your sources are copyrighted (as Thoreau and Lincoln are) we need to secure permission from the copyright holder first before using info they've published (often this is why we haven't added some of these libraries previously). Browne may be too, depending on the source.
