Fine Books & Collections: Peruse the Copyright Title Pages Collection at the Library of Congress

Fine Books & Collections: Peruse the Copyright Title Pages Collection at the Library of Congress. “Last month, in honor of the U.S. Copyright Act’s 150th anniversary, the Library of Congress launched an interesting new digital collection: Early Copyright Materials of the United States, 1790-1890. It might sound bland, but the result is an online database of 50,000 title pages of books published during that time that were deposited with the LOC by the publisher—and sometimes the author—prior to publication in order to fully register them per the terms of the law.”
