The Volume Library, Read Description for Copyright

From my understanding, anything copyrighted in the United States before 1923 is in the public domain, even though the copyright may have been renewed. Copyrights from 1923 through 1963 that were published with notice but copyright was not renewed in their 28th year are in public domain.


The original copyright of this book was in 1911, 1912, 1913, The W.E. Richardson

(I consider that public domain)


Next, copyright, 1915, 1916, R.E. Trosper, Jr.

(I consider that public domain)


Next, copyright, 1917, 1918, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1923, 1924, 1925, 1927, 1928, 1929, 1930, 1931, 1932, Educator’s Association, 307 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY

(I consider any part of this book that represents unrevised information before 1923 is in public domain. Any information that was revised and/or new and copyrighted 1923, or thereafter, needed to be renewed in their 28th year. I did not discover this book as being renewed. There are other books published with the same name, but they discuss religion. My book is about education, language and grammar, literature, history, geography, trade and industry, atlas, biography, multiplex dictionary, math, science, hygiene, government & law, fine arts, and useful miscellany.


Please inform me if you discover that these images are not in public domain.
