I thought this was a pinned topic, I'm sure it was. I printed several of them. Jones guide, FF, PT, Kelson, Blacker, Hardy, and Hale. There are plenty more classics, I cant find the site now.

Try http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org first. They have unique scans of most content, and in a higher resolution than archives.org.

The plates from some of their books are amazing, and they also have copies of ornithology books that include bird prints that you often see from Paul Rossman. Martinet and others.

Blacker is also there. Scans are so clear that you can make out the herl in front of the hackle on the Spirit Fly.

And lest we forget, there is the Google books library.
