Google: These books are free

CNET "Google Book Search now offers PDF files of scanned books that can be downloaded and printed for free, Google announced on Wednesday.
Readers can find the books by choosing the 'Full view books' option on the Google Book Search home page before they activate their search. Once they have chosen a book from the results page, a download button is clearly visible on the top-right corner of the page.
The PDFs are offered only for those books that fall into the public domain and are intended for personal use.
'We use very conservative rules to comply with international copyright laws,' Google spokeswoman Megan Lamb said."
