Homes Dudden, F.: Life and Times of St. Ambrose (abr.). V1.0. 18 Apr 2012
This abridged e-book contains, in full, the first 500 of the 750-plus pages in the two original volumes, comprising the complete narrative and omitting only the three long chapters devoted to Ambrose’s ethics, theology, and writings — which would, I think, test the patience of the general reader as much as the endurance of the editor. The bibliographies and indexes are also omitted. Apart from correcting typographical errors, and augmenting a few bibliographical notes, I have left the remainder of the text as printed.
The author died in 1957; consequently the book entered the public domain in Canada in 2008 but remains in copyright in Britain until 2028. In the United States, it would appear to fall under the "publication date + 95 years" rule and therefore will not enter the public domain in that nation until 2031. I am not a lawyer and could be wrong about any of this; act accordingly.
