I know there's such a thing as removing last months temporary unlicensed books but what is the command? I've done a search for it and it's beyond me to find it.

It's delete unlicensed resources, see https://wiki.logos.com/Delete_Unlicensed_Resources for more info

Does this remove all (including this month) or just the previous months unlicensed books?

It will remove all resources that you don't have a licence for (e.g. books you have returned, or previous preview resources). Books that you have a temporary licence for (e.g. Logos Now preview resources you can still access) will NOT be deleted.

If I understand this correctly, ALL the books which I'd been given preview access to (e.g. last month's Logos Now preview resource and last month's Logos 7 Platinum testdrive resources) are still residing on my disk - even though I no longer have access to them? That hardly makes sense.

That's correct.

Faithlife's response to this in the past has been to say that many people later purchase some or all of their preview resources, and not automatically deleting those resources makes like easier for these customers.

A few monthly preview resources are probably neither here nor there when it comes to disk space. Platinum is another matter, of course.

...such as? 

The command is not specific to LN resources, but for clarification: It isn't deleting "temporary" books. It is deleting books which have been previously downloaded by in which you no longer have a valid license (most of which will have been "temporary" LN resources). If a resource is a "temporary" title but you still have a valid (temporary) license, it will remain on your computer. The only ones deleted are those whose license (for you) has expired.
