Inquiries into the copyright on this text
indicate that US copyright was not renewed, nor was any claim filed under the
GATT. Barnes and Noble published the text in the US in 1967 with no claim of
copyright, and thus under the laws at the time as a public domain work.
Correspondence with Routledge (on file) indicated that they had no records
whatsoever about the book, including the date of its first sale in the US
(putting one copy on sale would constitute "publication" under GATT).
