I'm surprised that "the animators survivalkit" isn't mentioned in this.

WELL, google it and you'll find it. Great animation guide book.

Lucio Alberto posted a blog back in '07 with links to free pdf versions of many of the books you listed. It doesn't have all the Bridgeman books you listed, but I believe it has all the Loomis ones. Enjoy!

Note: Some of the links are dead now, but most are still alive.
