Seventeenth-century history-Filter: where can I find a copy of the first and second volumes of S.R. Gardiner's History of the Commonwealth and Protectorate online?

I've managed to track down the third volume here. But volumes 1 and 2 are nowhere to be found. Questia doesn't seem to have them and I've trawled Gutenberg and a few other e-books sites. Does anyone know where this might be found? I have the standard academic access rights via Athens access management system, so should be able to access anything that's restricted to unversities.

If all else fails I will go and dig it out of a library, but I am studying part-time on top of a full-time job, so ideally it would very handy to be able to look at it on and off from my desk rather than spend a few hours at a time in a library. Thanks in advance.

Best answer: My apologies, only Volume 3 is downloadable. Vols. 1 & 2 are available to peruse, but not download since they come from copywritten versions of the text.

Response by poster: Stupidly, I had forgotten about Google Books. Unfortunately it is limited preview so I can't read all the bits I need to - but this is still very much better than nothing. Thanks!

Apparently, if you buy the book from Amazon, and purchase an upgrade, you can read a digital copy online as well. At least for Volume 1.

I think.
