    All of these books are rare and hard to find. They were produced in late 1800s and early 1900s. They are now mostly out of print. I have complete resale rights on all these products.

    @KAS - When you click on the link you get a list (I get 56). Click on any one title (say, the first one that is just "Blacksmithing"). On the left hand side there is a sidebar titled "View the book". Underneath there are links for PDF, ePUB, Kindle, Daisy, Full Text and DjVu.

    To get the PDF, right-click PDF and click "Save link as". Or you can click the link for PDF and it will open in the browser and then you can save from there. Same for Kindle (save link as) or ePUB (iBooks).

    Yeah. It was a bit of work dogging through them because there were a number of duplicates. I got burned out but will get the rest up and I'll try to get some cover images as well.
