Direct method Latin and Greek books (repost/update)

Back at my former blog, I made a list of books for Latin and Greek, generally related to the Direct-Method, Rouse, etc., that it would be good to source. Some of them already exist on google books, or other places, but some of them are proving hard to track down. Since then I received a few new links which I’ve added to this one (thanks to that commenter!). Feel free to comment if you have located any others, and I’ll incorporate the link into this page.
