Appeals to the Privy Council

List of Images of Pages of Printed Cases
in the New York Public Library


There is only one image from the New York Public Library, the map included with the respondent’s printed case in Fothergill v Stover. As the lists of holders of printed cases show, NYPL holds a number of copies of printed cases; they reported more to the ESTC that they do not seem to be able to find. The reason for our neglect of the NYPL is simple: They do not allow the user to photograph their material, and the prices that they charge for making photographs are prohibitively high. Even higher are their licensing fees, which make little distinction between a scholarly enterprise and a for-profit commercial use.

Clicking on the link on the word ‘map’ below will bring directly to an image of the page listed. You may download and use a single copy of the image only for purposes of private study, research, or teaching. The image is large, so that the map can be read.
