Claim removed. Sorry 'bout that.

commons has essentially two types of PD statements - one for "death + x years" countries, and one for "PD US". This image had only the former, but not the latter, so you need to be careful.

to link covers, we need to download the zip file and then upload the individual file to Archive. The average zip file is about 300kb, yours are consistently around the 2,500 kb range because your pdf files are so large. I don't know why - all software varies and the images vary in complexity. My best guess is that you are using a very large image to make the pdf and a very high resolution. so maybe reducing it before adding the text would work - I do mine on 800 by 800 pixels , and the template I use seems to take a bit under 600 X 600.
So could you please make your pdf's smaller, it is un necessary upload time , download time for people wanting to use them and storage space.

Cover for Letters of Keats, #12167, please!

I always feel so insecure with this after a break; hopefully this has the right things in the right order ....

Noted - I will make them smaller in future. The 300x300 image size often doesn't fill the frame in the pdf, so I use a bigger file, but I'll reduce it in size before copy and pasting from now on.

I think on mine they are about 600X600. = I've no pdf editing so I need to get hold of images via a scree print sometimes and it's some figure like 597X597
