    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".

    We have gutenbergpress and archive.org for that :D
    From a quick search: http://googlebookdownloader.codeplex.com/

    I know about:

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