The editions you find here were created exclusively for the Dunyazad Digital Library. Their native format is PDF, the ePub and Mobi files have been derived from the plain text versions.

How to Download Files from the Authors’ Pages
This depends on your browser and your computer’s operating system, but on a Windows PC it is usually done by right-clicking the “Download …” link, and selecting “Save link as …”
Otherwise, if you left-click the link, the file will probably open in a new window or tab, and you can save it to a local drive from there.
All files are free of any DRM restrictions.
