Huh? Scribd is a pirate site????
It's a long out of print book, I thought the link was legitimate.
Even if it's out of print, unless it's being distributed via legal channels, it's still not legal.
For example, a group I was with years ago that shared PDF scans of West End's Star Wars d6 game once directly asked West End if it was okay, and paraphrased, their answer was that while it didn't bother them since they were out of print, they must say that no it's not okay, because it very much does bother LucasFilm and Wizards of the Coast who now hold the license (and then to expand that to today, I'm sure Wizards of the Coast would say a similar thing, they might not care specifically if you pirated their Star Wars books being that they are all out of print, BUT they still have to say no, as now Fantasy Flight Games holds the new license)
In the end, unless it's become public domain, being out of print does not make sharing a book outside of approved channels okay.
