Is there any place on the web where I can find legacy/public domain classes from book editors? For instance, I really like the style of this book but the current Springer book class (svmono.cls) doesn't produce this type of output anymore. Any ideas of where I could find the class used for that book (or any other editor book classes, for that matter)?

Thanks for any help! Regards, Jorge.

    There are publishers that make their classes available at their sites. Other just don't. Some of those are easy to reproduce. It depends on your motivation, and your reasons. – Joseph Apr 28 '18 at 19:02
  • Thanks for your reply, Joseph. Do you know of any book classes openly available from publishers? – dontpanic Apr 28 '18 at 19:05

    you imply that the svmono has changed but is it clear that the book was set with a springer class originally (it says it was published by Kluwer originally) or that it was set by TeX? – David Carlisle Apr 28 '18 at 20:29

    The only one I know that faithfully reproduces the final output is from De Gruyter: degruyter.com/dg/page/production-for-authors/herstellung. You should also consider taking a look at classes like caesar, tufte-book and octavo, among others. It all depends on your needs. – Joseph Apr 28 '18 at 20:50

    A horrible look of mathematical expressions in this book suggests that it is not LaTeX based. – Przemysław Scherwentke Apr 29 '18 at 0:52
