Just quote the book.

Take the quote

reference it at the bottom of the page with

1-Author
2-Publisher and when first published
3-Page number for the quote

etc etc

if it's a pdf file, just cite it as if it were a normal book. If it's on a web page, probably cite it as a website source. I use this site for all my mla questions http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/557/01/

hmm, if you don't have the page number you're going to have to borrow a copy from the library

I'm surprised the online book didn't have them though

Example of how I do it [copied and pasted from actual coursework]

In the bibliography:

Algeo, J., Pyles, T. (1983) The Origins And Development of the English Language – Fourth Edition, Boston, Thomson Heinle

Schilling-Estes, N., Wolfram, W. (1998) American English, Oxford, Blackwell Publishers

Holmes, J. (2001) An Introduction to Sociolinguistics – Second Edition, Harlow, Pearson Education.


In the actual text:


An example of this would be 'homely', a word which in British English means unpretentious or cosy, and in American English means ugly. Wolfram and Schilling-Estes (1998: 59) refer to this phenomenon as meaning shift, in which words used in history have changed their meanings over time, or taken on metaphorical meanings.


I was taught with the MLA method and I was always taught that you put the page number and year in brakcets in the actual citing within the text, then you just put the actual book at the end in the bibliography.
