U.S. Copyright Status[edit]

This compilation of stories was published in 1927 with a copyright renewal in 1955. Some of the stories included in this volume, however, were published before 1923, and are therefore in the public domain in the United States. Others are still under copyright in the U.S. (although they are public domain in the U.K.) because their copyrights were renewed. During a deletion debate at WS:COPYVIO, I uncovered the following renewal information for the stories collected in this volume:

We are in 2020 so the stories first published in 1923 and 1924 should be PD now. Hektor (talk) 11:37, 27 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]


We are in 2023 so all stories are now PD. If the book has been stored somewhere after its deletion in 2007 it could be restored. Hektor (talk) 00:22, 1 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
