EOD eBooks

Your requested eBook is thoroughly scanned and digitized from cover to cover. You will then receive your digital book in a single PDF file. You can then:

  • use the full text search of individual terms.
  • copy and paste the images and parts of the text to other applications (e.g. word processors).
  • paste and save the entire text of the document and further work with this text file as well as print single pages or the entire book.

In addition, if feasible, you may get the automatically recognized text in a separate text file which you will be able to edit in any standard word processor. Use your standard software (Adobe Acrobat Reader), to read the eBook on-screen, zoom in to the image or navigate through the book.

Price: CHF 10 plus CHF 0.20 / page
