I would like to record "The Life of Dominic Savio" by John Bosco, who died in 1909. The only text I could find was at this website: http://www.saintsbooks.net/books/St.%20John%20Bosco%20-%20The%20Life%20of%20Dominic%20Savio.pdf
Would that pass the Librivox muster for public domain?
Thanks.
Carol

I wonder if you'll get a quicker reply if you post this is the Suggested Project thread.
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

Admins are looking at it. No one has responded here yet because we haven't reached a conclusion. Hang in there.

I have emailed the website to see if they possibly have the original copy, or can provide a scan of the copyright page.
I have not been able to find a scan of the book online, or even a copy for sale from that printing.
