PDF downloads from Google Print

Google is now letting anyone (in the US only?) download PDFs of many public domain numismatic books. I see BMC Sicily (6.2 MB), BMC Macedonia (4.7 MB), BMC Corinth (7.4 MB), BMC Parthia (11 MB).

Folks on other websites are saying all the public-domain books are available this way. At least one, Coins of the Greek and Scythic Kings of Bactria and India isn't, probably because oddities in scanning would make that volume huge.

PS: I didn't post last week because I was on vacation in western Newfoundland. I highly recommend it. There is a nice museum and tour that shows how the Vikings smelted bog iron to make nails.
