Title: Google Books: Custom Date Range Search
Post by: Rick on January 14, 2011, 05:54:41 PM
Would you like to find all references for "Greathouse" in books that have been digitized and are available at Google Books that were originally published between a date range? For example between 1800 and 1810.

1) Browse to Google Books, http://books.google.com

2) Enter:  "Greathouse"  in the search field, then select "Search" button

3) In the left panel options, look under "Anytime", select "Custom Range", enter "1800" into the beginning date field and "1810" into the ending date field, then select the "Search" button. You will be presented with all books digitized by Google Books that were published between 1800 and 1810, with a reference to "Greathouse" in them.
