    Hi Cats, I am after the above book, I managed to get it downloaded, but I am missing pages 312-315 @ 322-330. Has anybody got any links they can send me to download the full edition, or perhaps send me the missing pages...:cool:

    The mods will probably close this thread because this is illegal.
    (you can probably download it on a torrent site...)

    Or you can buy the book which is worth the money!

    Technically, I don't think it is illegal (correct me if I'm wrong, I'm only young) because Jean-Baptiste Arban was around over 100 years ago so copyright laws would have ran out... ?
    Still, I feel I'd have a guilty conscience so I vote to buy the book anyway!

    The book may be in the public domain (not sure) but the publication that was likely scanned to make your PDF is almost definitely still protected. Someone would need to typeset it afresh and put that in the public domain. To find out how this stuff works, google for Project Gutenberg.

    I appreciate the apprehension in some of the replies. But the PDF of the Arban Method is not copyrighted, and can be freely downloaded.

    Among other places, it can be downloaded from the University of Rochester at the following link.

    I agree. I own a print copy, too. It's easier to flip through and play from. But the PDF is convenient for some things.
