Google News Archives Adds "Browse This Newspaper"

If you go to the Google News Archives and find a digitized back issue from the Google archives, you should be able to now browse that newspaper directly on Google.

For example, let's take a look at the The News and Eastern Townships Advocate. I can then browse the newspaper by panning through the pages.

Here are some screen captures:

I spotted this addition via the Google News Help forum where Googler, Inbal replied to an old thread with this feature request. She said:

We're excited to announce the launch of browse mode for newspapers in Archives! To do so, click "Browse this newspaper" to view other editions from that newspaper!

Indeed, very neat feature!

This is a wonderful addition to the online universe. One question: is there any way to select any of the newspaper pages or even an artlcle for printing. I tried every which way I could think of, but it seems that Google has prevented this.
