Instructions from the FAQ section:
How do I download and print multiple pages in EEBO, or an entire document?
  • You may download an entire book from EEBO, or a custom range of pages.

  • On your list of results, or if you are viewing the Full Record or Document Images for an item, you will see a checkbox to "Add to your Marked List." Check that box, and then select the "Marked List" option from the black menu along the top of each page.
  • On the Marked List page you will see a short citation for the item, and a PDF icon and link to "Download document images in PDF." If you click that link you will see two options to either download a page range or the entire document in PDF format.
  • Wait a few moments while the pages are converted to PDF. When that is completed, please "confirm" that you want to download the file and then you will see an option to open it or save it.
