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

Type of Material:       Book (Print, Microform, Electronic,
Personal Name:  Peyton, K. M.
Main Title:     Flambards / K.M. Peyton ; illustrated by
Victor G. Ambrus.
Published/Created: New York : Philomel Books, [1982],
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. :-)
