Those in Britain, so I've been told, are not able to see them. My co-blogger Roger Pearse from England uses me to get around it.

I can't download them either, and I'm in New Zealand. It seems to be restricted to the American Continent.

I had thought that Google just prevented all of them from being available, the fact that it is some and not others is really curious. It can't possibly because of copyright, some of the books they are preventing are 150+ years old. And why Penrose's Exercises, but not the Key to the same book? It's very strange.

Don't forget Pharr: http://books.google.com/books?id=r4IKAA ... 0&as_brr=1[url]

This copy doesn't have the missing pages that Textkit's does. Don't even try the 18.5 MB copy, on the theory it'll have more resolution or something; it's apparently been in a fire.

I Wasn't able to download anything from Google Books since February, but then I found a Firefox Extension called DownThemAll that ignores the "kill" signal they send after at most 4 MB--and also the one-hour limit that cuts you off after about 18.5. Yes, some of us still use dialup. Pathetic, huh?

I've checked the copyright laws of the Netherlands, which seem to be common in Europe: here, a book is copyrighted up until 70 years after the death of the author. So, books of authors who died before 1937 are now out of copyright.
I guess Google assumes people reach an age of about 90 and write their first book when they are about 20; as I don't have any books written after 1870 in my downloads. But there are exceptions, as with the Key Ed mentioned. And Ritchies Fabulae Faciles is not available via Google, but has been for years on the Gutenberg Project.

I think to everyone, except, I guess, to Americans and Canadians, there is only one American continent. There are subdivisions (North, South, Central, Caribbean), but ONE continent. :wink:

Oh, Amadeus. Do you know the book Los exploradores españoles del siglo XV by Charles Fletcher Lummis? It´s very beautiful and good. I recommend you it. (I have an edition from the 1930s) http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDet ... D0%26x%3D0

P.S.: The links above are excelent. :wink:

Salve, Gonzalo. No, I haven't heard of that book. The title looks interesting. I'll have to buy it sometime.

Also, I just did a flash research about the American continent, and it seems that there are actually several models being taught in different parts of the world. The Anglophone community is taught that there is a North America (Canda, USA and Mexico) and a South America. They include the Antartic as a continent also. So that's a total of 7 continents. Whereas the Spanish-speaking community is only taught of 5 continents, id est, one American contient, and no Antartic continent.

Well, live and learn. I'll just stick to the 5 I've known all my life.

really! I had no idea that there were different ways... I've always been taught 7 continents. So yeah, to avoid annoying Canadians, it's safest to say North America (also, in the case of the books, it is most likely just Canada and the US anyway... South America probably can't access the books either).

Canadians are particularly touchy about this due to a) our love-hate relationship with the US and b) the fact that we derive so much of our identity from NOT being American. It's deeply rooted within our psyche. :)

If you aren´t in the USA -like me- and you want to get that PDFs -whose access is only avaliable to the US country- you have only to turn your language preferences into English (US). I have done that and now I am able to it.

As far as I know there are no language preferences for the Google Books section; and my general preferences are English already. Are there any other places where you could change this? It seems to know I am in Holland and keeps on giving me the Dutch version on subsequent pages, even if the main page is in ENglish.

Excuse me, I have mistaken. I were talking about Live Search books (Microsoft), whose server does not allow you to get their books if you aren´t in the US.

Are the Microsoft books not stored on archive.org (which should be universally available)? Any I've found through Microsoft's site have come from there, and it's infinitely better to search archive.org than it is that fiasco of a search engine Microsoft is experimenting with. Or am I wrong and there are books that you can get from the Microsoft site that are not stored on archive.org? [I'm personally only interested in downloadable books, of course, I'm sure there are "preview" types of things there.]

Chris: Precisely, Chris, I know Live Search Books by means of your blog.

Eddonelly: If you want to get only downloadable books, you must turn the "finder box" in that way. I´m not sure if I have given you a correct response. I also refuse viewing the previews... :P

Well, is there no way for us in the "wrong" continent to download the books?
Some of the books were downloadable. But when I downloaded a few of them, and tried a fourth book Google thinks I'm a robot. :? :shock: And it keeps giving me this response thereafter:

Hi, Mingshey.
It happens to me something similiar. When I download many books and I already get it... I open the file and my PC can´t open it. I have to download them one by one or two by two.

"We're sorry...

The best way is to download the books one by one.

politeness doesn't preclude honesty. ;)

it's no surprise that we would feel some amount of angst towards a country on which we depend for trade but which has continually screwed us over from day one. :)

The Stampede is in Calgary... Edmonton's claim to fame is our ridiculous mall. And we have no buildings as glorious as the most humble chapel in Rome. :(

Well somebody at the Edmonton Northlands thinks they have a stampede:

Maybe they could hold gladitorial competitions at the Mall (maybe they have already?).

Maybe they could hold gladitorial competitions at the Mall (maybe they have already?).

weird, I've never heard of an edmonton stampede. It obviously isn't well-attended or advertised. :P

gladiatorial competitions in the mall would be hilarious. they may have to remove the massive pirate ship first...

Google Books Download

Postby lacuna » Thu Aug 09, 2007 3:41 pm

Well, there's a way to download books that are unavailable for users outside USA... I'm teaching both Greek and Latin and I'm also working on my PhD in Classics in Poland: without the help of google books I couldn't even fancy to get some essential dissertations I needed (and which aren't a subject to copyright in Poland!). If any of you want to know how to do it (it's not illegal in any way!), please send me a private message.

A grab bag of full-downloads I have recently run across.

Babrius (fables in choliambics; late) by W.G. Rutherford. Has extensive notes in English beneath the main text.
Plato's Euthyphro by W.A. Heidel. Notes again extensive.
The Isthmian Odes of Pindar, J.B. Bury. This is still highly enough regarded that modern commentators (Verdenius) still respond to it.
The Nemean Odes of Pindar, J.B. Bury. This was less carefully scanned.

All the works for Aristotle I've run across are shoddy scans.

Not exactly classical, but probably of interest to some textkittens, is E. Nestle's Syriac Grammar with Bibliography, Chrestomathy and Glossary. It's in an unforgiving style, but still something of a classic.

And a little Euripides...

Medea, A.W. Verrall. A fine scan, notes below the text.
Bacchae, A.H. Cruickshank. Pretty good scan, notes after text.
Cyclops, W.E. Long. Mostly good scan, with a few iffy pages. Notes after text.
Alcestis, H.W. Hayley. Acceptable scan; large apparatus, notes after text.
Hecuba, A.W. Upcott. Good scan; a beginners' edition with notes and vocab after text.
Iphigenia in Tauris, W.N. Bates. Mostly good scan; freaky metrical analysis, notes under text.

A few on Greek verse composition have been appearing.

An Introduction to Greek Verse Composition with Exercises, Sidgwick & Morice. This is the classic. On iambics only.
Greek verse composition, a revised ed. of the Greek verses of Shrewsbury school, by G. Preston. Old-fashioned conception of the iambic trimeter, but includes it, tetrameters and anapests in the exercises. Starts you off on half-lines.
Demonstrations in Greek Iambic Verse, W.H.D. Rouse. Thorough and somewhat terrifying, but much to be learned here. A few pages in the scan are blurry.

I cannot see what you post in Google Books, Annis.
If someone is interested, there are available the discourses of Dion Chrysostom at Google Books:

Have all of you people who are unable to download or access googlebooks tried going through a US proxy? This one works for me in Australia:

If it doesn't work for you, there are plenty more here:

Thank you very much. I did not know what was a proxy. Excuse me. :oops:
P.S.: Welcome to Textkit.

The problem with the proxies I tried was that you still can't download the books; only view them. Can your proxy download, Briggsy?

Thanks a hell lot!
This proxy works even to downloading! I'm in Korea.
I've just downloaded "Treatise on Conic Sections" by Apollonius of Perga, translated by T. L. Heath., the book I searched for desperately for years.

(edit)
I'd welcome free Greek and Arabic version of this book. But although this is an English translation, it contains short greek quotes, which suits my level for practices. :)
