  • While I have tried my best to ensure that content that I have described as being in the public domain is in fact in the public domain, it is possible that I have made a mistake; also, copyright laws vary from country to country.

  • If you reuse public domain content on your own website, it would be appreciated if you could provide a link back to my site, although this isn't a legal requirement or anything like that.
  • If you intend to reproduce images in print media, I may in some cases be able to provide higher-resolution images than what are found on the website; you can contact me to get a hold of these.
