Good question. I went back and looked and the various copies of Flambards. Apparently that's the date of publication of that particular edition and not the copyright date. Here's what I found when I clicked on the book that had the 1982 date under date on the right. 82022391 Type of Material: Book (Print, Microform, Electronic, etc.) Personal Name: Peyton, K. M. Main Title: Flambards / K.M. Peyton ; illustrated by Victor G. Ambrus. Published/Created: New York : Philomel Books, , c1967. Description: 206 p. ; 22 cm. ISBN: 0399209255 : The trouble is, that doesn't specifically state who holds the copyright and one might jump to the conclusion that it's the publisher. I suspect it's still Peyton. The only time I found the gov. copyright site closed was from Sat. to noon on Sunday, and then it never opened on time. That was annoying, since it seemed that's mostly when I wanted to access it. I don't know what the online hours are now, but if it's only during business hours that is inconvenient. I hope more publishers allow us to look into books on Amazon and that the copyright page is available. :-) Cindy --- "Jamie Yates, CPhT" <jamieyates@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > I guess I never liked the copyright.gov site because > it was only good during business hours. > > At loc.gov in basic search, that date all the way > to the right side of the screen, that's not the > copyright date?
