I believe The Epic of Gilgamesh as translated by William Muss-Arnolt should be in the public domain both here in Europe and in the USA as he lived/died 1860-1927 and his translation seems to have first been published in 1901.

I agree with previous contributors that this book should be recorded and available to all.

Thank you.

Thanks for the info! Do you have a link to an online text of this version? :) If we can find it, I'm sure we'd get readers for it!
