How to Download a Page from Google Books?

I will tell you upfront that you’ll need the Google Chrome browser to use this method.

1. Open the Google book in your Google Chrome browser and go to the page you wish to download.

2. Right-click on the page and select Inspect Element

3. Under Inspect Element, go to Resources and select Images.

4. Browse all the images and find the image of the page you wish to download. Sometimes it will be available in more than one size. In such cases, select the image with the best size.

5. Double-click the image name to open the image in a new tab. Right-click the image and select Save Image As.

6. Save the file to your local machine and enjoy!

Enjoy! 🙂

      You can do the same thing in FF using the tools -> Page Info, and then clicking the Media tab.

      (Four years later…) In Firefox, go to the Tools menu and choose “Page Info”. Click on the “Media” button at the top of the pop-up window, and scroll through the list to find the image you’re interested in. Then use the “Save as…” button to save a copy.

        Thank you for this. This works. It took me a bit to stop looking for a “PDF” file. If I only select one image, the “Save As” seems to want to save it as HTML. So I choose more than one, and it downloads as individual JPG files.

    If someone can’t see some pages on the image list, then you need too scroll down by all pages on the Google Books view and it will load on the list.

    This no longer works, sadly. It says “Inspect”, but then there is no menu item or button or anything for “Images”. Not that I can find.
