Yet another copyright question: Aylmer Maude (translator of Tolstoy's books)

I've stumbled upon a Wikisource version of Tolstoy's "A confession," but I haven't been able to find a pdf that matches the etext, which has some formatting issues.

Apparently the translation is by Aylmer Maude (1858–1938), but for some odd reason, Google Books doesn't offer the book for download, presumably because the US copyright of the translation has been renewed.

I've got two questions:

1. Does anybody know where I could find a Public Domain pdf of the Aylmer Maude translation of Tolstoy's "A confession?"

2. Would I be able to upload Aylmer Maude translations to MR or would they be automatically moved to the Offline forum?

Can't help you with that one, I'm afraid.

Sure. Her translations are in the life+70 public domain. No problem at all to upload them.

@Doitsu --
Hathi-trust has a pdf :
http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?i...view=1up;seq=7

Unfortunately, they have a silly policy that you must have a "partner logon" (with a participating university or other institution) to download the entire book. Otherwise, it is one page at a time, I'm afraid (and they put on a temporary 5-minute block on your IP when you exceed "resources").

But it is digitized by Google, so there MUST be other copies available SOMEWHERE.

Or, of course, you could just stay logged in to Hathi while you work on your text.......
