I referred to many of those book when I did my TESOL post grad - I think it unlikely that any would be downloadable and I would not recommend you buy any unless you have $$$ to spare. (You might however, be able to buy them cheaply from e-bay.  I have nabbed some bargains that way)
It is best if you can you borrow them from a library - your institution should have some sort of system where where you can loan them from them or a reciprocal institution closer to you.  (One of those books is actually available in the reference section of my community library which I found quite surprising - I used it often)
These are all prominent authors and you will find a lot of information about them on the web - just google their name and key words.  If you have access to electronic journals you�ll also find heaps of information.
