I'm bedevilled by pages that print completely differently than they look. IE has various options for this, but I can't find anything in Safari. I've got a receipt saved as webarchive that I really needed to print, but all the vendor ID (top & bottom frames perhaps?) is left off; the only way I could do it was to page-grab with Command-shift-3, then print that. Surely there's a better way!

So if you were to print this page then it would not print the whole page not sure what
OS you are using along with the printer but I have options on my HP to print headers and footnotes also backgrounds or not.

I just tried that site and you are right it will only allow the side frame of books to be copied first time I have seen this.
I can however go to any other place on that site and print the whole page just not the one you provided.

Since some web pages are not designed specifically with printing to an 8.5x11 sheet of paper in mind, many times your browser will make certain compromises to get the page to fit that form factor. You may have better success with bringing up the print dialog and choosing the PDF button in the lower-left corner and opting to save as PDF and then printing from there.
