   What license is attached to the copy of the book on his Web site?
   The license on the printed copies is relevant only to them.

This is actually not true, a printed copy is not a transparant copy.
You create the printed works from the transparant one.  If the source
for the printed copy is located on this web page, then the license
that is on the printed works applies equally to the copy that is
located on the web page.
