 Hi Francesco, 
that is a great idea to build a library.
I am on the same search as you and found it really hard to find good books about synth DIY.
The following is a free download so I understand you could print it out locally. It is a lot better than many newer books tbh since it deals with the discrete elements like op amps and OTAs but also the specialized chips from CEM and SSM that are now available again from the original companies and also as cheaper clones.
Electronic music circuits : Klein, Barry : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive

I also find the whole Music from Outer Space website amazing with discrete circuits and detailed explanations, e.g.
Music From Outer Space Your Synth-DIY Headquarters

Then there are the great designs by Thomas Henry. You can buy some books via an online printing service but honestly I was missing explanations in them, mostly just a circuit collection. 
Thomas Henry - Synth DIY WikiThe following site is excellent with lots of circuit details:
Thomas Henry DesignsMany of his great magazine articles are available for free (just takes forever to download this pdf):
File:The Reprint Collection by Thomas Henry CC BY NC.pdf - Synth DIY Wiki
Maybe check if you can get this one used, I just found one but have not gotten or read it yet:
Musical Applications of Microprocessors by Hal Chamberlin

Then I am also looking for the Bernd Hutchins books at list not all the Electronotes like you. I jumped on this thread as well, no reaction so far:
electronotes/musical engineer's handbook/pcc pdfs - Page 6 - MUFF WIGGLER

Finally there are some magazine articles available free for download:ETI: Electronics Today International. Hobbyist Magazine UK Edition
Polyphony Issues (Active)
Digisound Project 80 synthesizer modules | Digisound 80

And then there is more in terms of electronic basic knowledge and maybe op amps and active filter design, just some free stuff I found.https://e2echina.ti.com/cfs-file/__key/telligent-evolution-components-attachments/00-52-01-00-00-04-59-46/OP-amp-for-everyone.pdf
Don Lancaster's Guru's Lair Free eBook Downloads

And some books you have to buy, potentially used or in a older edition:
The Art of Electronics
Practical Electronics for Inventors
Small Signal Audio Design

please let us know if you find additional treasures, specifically from the birth era of analog synths...

 Hi, i'm interested in buying the EN stuffjust discovered today that Ben does not ship anymore.
I'm in Italy, i prefer European seller.
Ps. I also look for other books on synths, electronic musical instruments, musical electronics mainly in English but I also evaluate other languages. My idea is to open a library in my city to make it freely available.
