Copyright has expired for US books from 1923

After many extensions, US books printed in 1923 are now out of copyright. This week the Internet Archive made 33 numismatic works from 1923 available.

1923 wasn't a stellar year. The works are mostly auction catalogs. Included is Henry Chapman’s Ancient and modern foreign and American gold coins collected by the late Enrico Caruso, the sales catalog of the opera singer's coin collection.

No illustrations. This is the copy from the American Numismatic Society library. The catalog is 'priced' (sale prices recorded in the margins).
