Hello. I can assist you with your question.

And then I'd have to make a leap to tie that in with e-books.
If it's a modern work, then it is very likely an e-book, but I'd have to look each one up to be sure.
If it is not, then it has very likely become an e-book through the Gutenberg Project.
Or It's affiliates.
Let me know if the information I've given you is helpful. I'll keep digging if you'd like.
