I found that it is possible to reference specific pages on Google Books items using &lpg=PA???&pg=PA??? after the ?id= part of the url where ??? is the page number, e.g. https://books.google.de/books?id=1VUJAAAAQAAJ&lpg=PA352&pg=PA352#v=onepage&q&f=false for page 352.

We could use these in the mets.xml <mets:fileGrp USE="IMG"> section rather than https://books.google.de/books?id=1VUJAAAAQAAJ#page=352.

But, unfortunately, either way, iiuc it is not currently possible to persistently reference the Google Books PDF directly, so users will have to manually download the PDFs.

Just found this which contains Python code allowing download of individual images from GoogleBooks. Need to look into it a bit more!
