Copyright question[edit]

Considering that Joan Blaeu's exceptional Atlas Maior was completed in 1665, it should be considered in the public domain.

Does that mean that we can freely scan and publish the maps published by Taschen? Or are the reproductions protected by copyright?

The Taschen books aren't just reproductions, nor true facsimiles of the Atlas Maior; the texts are new, so there's definitely copyright on the books. Whether there's any copyright on the individual maps as published in the Taschen series, I can't say. You should contact the author (Peter van der Krogt), the publisher (Taschen Verlag) and the current owner of the original atlas (Austrian National Library in Vienna) for more information. Michael!
