Actually, the book in question was purchased around 1979. If it was
written in or after 1978, life + 70yr applies. If before, the story is
complicated but there is some chance.

The previous post was meant to be a more general commentary.

(I'm making a booklet on silver gelatin process, for which some useful
works are published during 20s. So I'm often annoyed by the 1923 line
because there's no easy way to figure out whether the copyright
expired for sure (there are ways to find out the contrary, though),
and also practically no way to get express permission for use of a
figure or picture in a book published in 1923 or shortly after.)
