You can get a list of all French and Spanish books in CSV format from  
the advanced search engine:
http://www.archive.org/advancedsearch.php (scroll to bottom form)

I think the search you want to do is:
mediatype:texts AND (language:"spanish" OR language:spa OR  
language:"french" OR language:fre)

This gives 223631 books at this time.

You can download a list of these books in CSV format and then then  
feed them to the bulk download script found here:


Hope that helps!
