In Store Book Printing: Books on Demand
About Books On Demand
Read on for information about Books on Demand at Harvard Book Store. Find information on Custom Printing here.
With our books on demand service, our customers can print paperback books from electronic files available online, including previously inaccessible titles such as Lewis Carroll’s original manuscript for Alice in Wonderland, Alice's Adventures Under Ground (1886), An Historical Sketch of Groton, Massachusetts, 1655-1890 (1894), and The Chemistry of Hat Manufacturing (1906), lectures that forever changed the British hat manufacturing industry.
We can print nearly five million titles, including Google Books that are in the public domain, as well as thousands of publisher-permission titles. Many out-of-print books and books that are no longer under copyright can be in your hands within minutes.

If you've found the title in Google Books, you can locate the Google ID number in the URL, as seen below; so the Google ID for Alice's Adventures Under Ground is H7oNAAAAYAAJ.
