Previous Issues HBR, Harvard Business Review

Could someone create a modified HBR (Harvard Business Review) recipe, so I can download previous issues?

The magazine section at has the years previous editions.

I tried cloning and modifying the HBR recipe using the following:
In the function: def hbr_get_toc(self):
I added a hardcoded line for the month I wanted:
url = '/archive-toc/BR1009'

According to the partial error log, it looks like my url is not correct.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 103, in main
File "", line 85, in run_entry_point

link = br.find_link(text='Sign out')
File "site-packages\mechanize-0.1.11-py2.6.egg\mechanize\", line 626, in find_link
This worked once, except for the cover, but I am not able to replicate other months.

Adittionally, could the modification include downloading and applying the cover for edition?

I am publishing to ePub.

Could you post a working script here because I am sure there are others interested in a similar feature and function.

Thanks for your help.

P.S. I have been using Calibre for about 18 months, first with my Kindle, and now with my iPad, and I love the application.
