    Hello:

    I have found many very good "old"  technical books of virtually all fields of knowledge on GOOGLE Books - and patents, too. However, a few are BAD copies and missing attachments.

    Worth trying, though

    A sad but accurate, IMHO, commentary.  Unless you have access to
    technically-oriented university libraries the number of volumes available in
    non-fiction are out numbered by fiction.  Is wood working, metal smithing
    navigation etc. of lesser value than fiction?
