Academic books online

The eScholarship Editions collection includes almost 2000 books from academic presses on a range of topics, including art, science, history, music, religion, and fiction.

Access to the entire collection of electronic books is open to all University of California faculty, staff, and students, while over 500 of the titles are available to the public.
Of particular interest to me is Durling & Martinez's Time and the Crystal: Studies in Dante's Rime Petrose. Both authors are responsible for the OUP's superb translation of the Commedia. And, in Serge Gavronsky's Toward a New Poetics, there's a long interview with Jacques Roubaud, along with other French novelists and poets.
