Dawsonera -

  • Print between 5% - 20% of the eBook.
  • Copy between 5% and 10% of text.
  • Download and access the eBook for a maximum of 7 days.

*Note: Printing, copying and annotation is only possible when reading online. Books can be downloaded multiple times.


  • Print or save up to 60 pages of the book as a PDF file*.
  • No download option available.

*Note: The number of pages may vary depending on individual publisher-specified limits.
