Google Book Search and Shakespeare?

Am I missing something? Google is pushing its Book Search project with a Shakespeare special and all I can see when I click on some of the books is a pretty much empty page (with shopping & web search links thankyouverymuch). Considering that Shakespeare’s work passed into the public domain that’s less than other sites offer. Is this a geolocation thing only happening outside the US?

On some of the rare books that Google enables me to page through, like Love’s Labor’s Lost, the scan quality is good for research but not really great for online reading.
