I can set this up for you.

Edit: ready for you to finish the set up.

Obviously, Cross died in 1917, so his work is PD, but we need to ensure the individual sources are also PD (so not from a collection published post-1926).

It was published in 1907, so I figured everything in the collection had to be PD.

:thumbs: You did not give a text link, so I could not check. You have it set up as from multiple sources.

Oh, that was my bad! It's supposed to be as a set...I posted the link in the thread. Is there something I have to do to fix it?
