    Noell Wilson, you wrote:
    "...may just be me but it seems that Google copies of old books are only available to read - not to download as a complete copy. It didn't used to be that way."

    The folks at Google have made it less obvious how to download the pdf version, but a download is normally still available (with restrictions for some non-US Internet addresses depending on local laws). You can usually find the link under the settings menu for any book. The settings menu is represented by an icon shaped like a gear.

    And a reminder: many historical navigation texts are linked directly from the NavList main web page. I am attaching visual instructions that take your from the main NavList page, through the book index, to the Google download page.
