Reference and Bibliomaniacal Lit from Google Books

Herein is my personal catalog of reference and other books of particular interest to me that have been scanned and made available in PDF format via Google Books. They've proved a really marvelous resource, and one which is getting steadily better, larger and more useful. While it's handy and convenient to let them store the things so they'll be at your fingertips whenever you're on the web, a cautionary type might want to download copies of at least the ones of most interest. Google is a corporation, with more rights - thanks to Big Tony and the Supremes - and less responsibilities than these anachronisms we call individuals, and they can do whatever they bloody well want to at any time they want to do it. This is all here because either I can't figure out how to use the tools Google Books provides to do this, or their tools are insufficient and overly fussy.
