Public-Domain Selection

There are heaps of forgotten books in the world. Admittedly, most of them deserve being lost in time, but some are quite good and it's one of my greatest pleasures to bring them back to attention. Therefore I review every once and again books which are in the public domain in countries like Austria where copyright automatically expires 70 years after the author’s death. But don't rejoice too soon! If you want or need to read a translation, it may still be protected by the translator's copyright (!) and you won't find it on any of the legal sites offering free ebooks.
