Searching for old books on Google books

You may already know this trick but if you are looking for books from say 1830s, 1860s etc then do your search terms but modify if by 'full view'. It is mostly books from the 19th century that are in full view so it filters out all the modern 'snippet view' rubbish.
For example I put in Legion Etrangere and the first book on full view is this book

Campagnes et travaux de la légion étrangère, depuis 1831, en Espagne et en Algerie...By H. Delevingne 1855

  1. And if you are from Europe and have no chance to load down some books because of the European copyright laws, try a proxserver like this and you can download like an American.
