Re: More on copyright

Looks as though HathiTrust marked it public domain in the United States (we trust their copyright clearance process). I have no idea how it's PD since it was published in 1933, but it's possible that its copyright wasn't renewed. Nonrenewal of copyright is a loophole with some 20th-century books but...

Re: Abbey Court Murder -Solo Project Possibility

If this book was published in 1923, the original version should be public domain in the United States. The trick is to find an original version, meaning either a scan of a 1923 edition or a version posted on gutenberg.org (the US site) or HathiTrust (which are both reliable sources for books in the ...
