Most of these links are to digitized, somewhat dated texts which have passed into the Public Domain and been uploaded to the Internet Archive, which are still perfectly good, or perhaps because of their datedness even better, as fodder for conlanging. They are offered in many file formats. Follow the "All Files: http" link to download. The b/w PDF, if available, is best for printout. The OCRed .txt version is full of errors but still good for searching!
