If they are downloadable, there is an option in the "tools" menu (click the icon that looks like a gear-wheel at the top right of the screen).

But IMO google books seems to have quietly changed its objective from "digitizing the world's out-of-copyright literature for free download" to "making money for google as a bookseller's advertising site".

I know about:
http://book.huhiho.com/

But do not feel confident whether its legal in your jurisdiction. Under Polish law it's OK within "dozwolony użytek" (fair use).
