---- Forbid Google to offer the "View as HTML" link for pdf

I'm in the view as html crowd...
If that is the motivation, then I would suggest providing it as HTML pages (50 of them if necessary) and having a link (appropriately excluded from robots) to the PDF for printing purposes.
It looks like you have already decided (and it seems a viable solution), but I would also consider providing a page or two of html as a 'teaser' and allowing full PDF to be downloaded to read / print the remaining portion, because I'm also a card carrying member of the 'not a chance I'm going to read 50 html pages crowd'.
