    I clicked the link to show the book, and then pressed command-S (on my iMac) to save it as a webpage. :smile:

    Oh lucky you are! I use a windows PC so i dont have that command-S. Is there any other alternative to save it as PDF on any OS?

    oooh, dunno anything about PCs. :redface:

    I don't think it is a pdf, so I don't think you can save it as one.

    (But it's as good as a pdf … the search facility works just as it does online.)

    Can't a PC save an ordinary webpage?​

    PC can save ordinary pages but it does not apply for books.google.com. what you get, is empty pages unless one tries to go back to caches and save them as pictures. But it is a long process and sometimes the pages are not clear as online ones. can i ask you a favor?
    If it is not complicated would you please download it and convert it in PDf and then after you will upload it on sendspace.com in order to let me access it easily?
