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? (talk) 11:38, 8 September 2011 (UTC) WikiNovice

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!

Although the "History" section isn't annotated, everything I wrote there can be easily verified[1]. Michael! (talk) 21:32, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Geographica Blaviana and Cosmographia Blaviana should also redirect to this page, just like Atlas Blaeu. Michael! (talk) 21:35, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

hello shittypedia[edit]

Is "the largest and most expensive book published in the seventeenth century" or "the largest and most expansive book published in the seventeenth century" ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:18, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
