[lg policy] BBC programme: Loan words from Indian languages into English during the colonial period (Hobson-Jobson )

There is a programme going out on BBC Radio 4 on Friday morning at 11 a.m. 
UK time, and a linked feature that might be of interest at 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18796493

The article mentions Kate Teltscher's forthcoming Oxford World's Classics 
edition and links to the OpenLibrary google scan, but I can't resist 
mentioning (forgive me if this is too commercial) that I worked on a 
facsimile reissue of Hobson-Jobson for the Cambridge Library Collection in 
2010, and found it absolutely fascinating reading. You can see details of 
the Cambridge offering at 
http://www.cambridge.org/gb/knowledge/isbn/item5659739/?site_locale=en_GB 
. 

I'd be very grateful for any suggestions of other out of copyright 
language policy/linguistics-related books that would be deserving of good 
quality paperback reissues; these could also include grammars or 
glossaries of languages that are now endangered or extinct.
