National copyright laws mean that Google Books is different in the US and the UK, and the BL has its own Google Books agreement: https://www.openrightsgroup.org/blog/2011/access-to-the-agreement-between-google-books-and-the-british-library

Could it be that the books were given different titles for US and UK publication? I run into that a lot with Wodehouse. So you can find "Money for Jam" but not "Money in the Bank," even though they're the same book.

But still, Miriam is reading the authors who for the most part are dead and buried for more than 70 years. I'll never manage to understand the vagaries of the copyright law.
