UNBELIEVABLE...... what a response......... probably the best forum I've ever joined online.
Thank you to all of the ( rather oddly named I have to say) members and experts who have been kind enough to spend a few minutes on My little problem.!!

The complication comes from the pictures in a publication, both in the publication and any and all cover art, often have their own independent copyright. The text of a book may fall into public domain while the cover art or some included artwork, drawing or photograph, may still retain its copyright. This is why public domain books are often reproduced with new cover designs rather than their often better original cover art.
To that I would add that pictures may also have other impediments that go beyond copyright. For example, if you take a picture of a person and don't have a model release, you may be limited in the ways that you can use that photo.
