Download each Plum Book

Each Plum Book can be downloaded as a PDF file and read on your computer. These have been ‘transcribed’ by Google but much of the character recognition is wrong; this makes searching the Plum Books unreliable.

The CSV files have been extracted into fields with a Python script; these can be downloaded and opened in a spreadsheet program, such as Excel. Sadly these are only available for some years due to the format the Plum Book was printed in.
