I was looking for an early pamphlet about a giant squid, and found the page that it is on waives rights on their digitisations:

("To the extent possible under law, the Text Creation Partnership has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to this keyboarded and encoded edition of the work described above, according to the terms of the CC0 1.0 Public Domain Dedication (http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/). This waiver does not extend to any page images or other supplementary files associated with this work, which may be protected by copyright or other license restrictions. Please go to http://www.textcreationpartnership.org/ for more information.")

They have quite a few early English pamphlets.

I'll be claiming "A true and perfect account of the miraculous sea-monster, or, Wonderful fish lately taken in Ireland" soonish.

That's great - but I presume the original text would still need to meet PD requirements to be used as a source here? So pre-1924, I suppose.
