Google: These books are free

(CNET News.com)
Google Book Search now offers PDF files of scanned books that can be downloaded and printed for free. The PDFs are offered only for those books that fall into the public domain and are intended for personal use. A book's availability depends on the country from which the user is accessing the site. Google blocks users from works that are not yet in the public domain for their country.
