You're welcome everyone - really enjoying all your reactions. However all thanks should go to the crew at archive.org and their contributors, especially the Canadian Libraries, who do a beautiful job.
Thanks Asoir, if you're into classic pen and ink work try these
Sullivan, Edmund J. 1921. The Art Of Illustration.
Sullivan, Edmund J. 1922. Line - an art study
(warning: If you read the entire book you'll need to overlook the occasional use of words that would be considered racist today)

Not gonna' happen. This is all public domain stuff. And the Loomis books haven't really gone anywhere, you just have to look a little harder...

That said, the administrative direction of archive.org is ideologically strong enough to resist internal strife, as opposed to the Smithsonian institution, which had a pretty corrupt director.
Oh right public domain rules so does archive.org and so does brigsy. Thank you sir , tahnk you very much.
