Please note that something that is out of copyright in one region of the world may still be covered by copyright in the UK. There is often no information about what edition the version is based on, so you can not judge the quality of the editorial work, or be sure that it is a legal copy in the UK. Often out-of-copyright editions have long been superceded by more rigorously edited versions. Use with care!
