Wow... a monumental project. I’m particularly interested in Japanese mythology. But it says published in 1928 for that part— yet it says public domain. .. true? ...LJB

Just check the PD status carefully - many are not PD.

Well, rats about the J-mythology in this set.
Good thing there are other sources...

After mulling it over some more, I decided not to launch any volume after all (due to my own time constraints). I hope someone else does, though! :D
