Hi Sue,
The way I do it is

1) Go to Rare books on the site on your computer
2) Click on the text below the book you want to read and it opens up the online reading option

3) 

Click on the link and it will open:

4)


Right click pdf and download it to your desktop (or your folder with all stuff calligraphy).

5) Transfer to your tablet.

I have only transferred to the iPad and found that the "pdf with text" and "Epub" versions don't work properly on the iPad.  The plain pdf versions works well

Doing this directly on the iPad will not work.
Happy reading. 

-Prasad

This deserves a Topic all of it's own, Prasad.  Thanks for the tutorial!

I am a little slow. Does this put the book in your iBooks application? And how do you right click on a iPad?

I'm able to save the book and open it perfectly fine in the Kindle App. iBooks seems to be acting funny. One option I can think of is downloading the book using a laptop and transfer it to the iPad.
