Sorry for having not mentioned (or reminded) in the discussion the 
following three on-going projects of Indological digital libraries at
http://dsal.uchicago.edu/
http://dli.iiit.ac.in/ (searchable but... sometime it is easier to 
find there a book through google than through their own search-tool)

>Thank you very much, dear Peter Wyzlic, for this very useful list you made.

>Some additional notes:

>http://books.google.com/books?q=editions:0ZJfTAXwj3ok5Ad8&id=7HUIAAAAQAAJ&hl=de&source=gbs_other_versions_sidebar_s&cad=4
>It could be interested to note these details

>- if we take the example of NALA AND DAMAYANTI AND OTHER POEMS 
>translated by Henry Hart Milman (which is not in the list):
>http://books.google.com/books?id=vPY0ekwvgzUC
>in this case, it has also been converted into an e-text through the

>http://infomotions.com/etexts/gutenberg/dirs/1/9/5/2/19529/19529.htm
>and is also available in various formats through :
>http://manybooks.net/titles/milmanh1952919529-8.html
>Should these things be mentioned ?

>
>- what about such available .pdf  (which is not really a scanned

>previously printed book) - do you list them?.
>Ananda Wood, Knowledge before printing and after: The Indian 
>Tradition in Changing Kerala
>www.scholarswithoutborders.in/KnowledgeBeforePrinting&After.pdf
>
>- Of course, there is also the case of the pure (free) .pdf

>
>- do you list also the digital works readable but not downloadable
