Source Scan of the 1962 edition, an unabridged republication of the original edition.
Author Caroline Furness Jayne (1873-1909), Introduction and some photos by Alfred Cort Haddon (1855-1940), other photos are either "Courtesy of Mr. S. C. Simms" (that is Stephen Chapman Simms (1863-1937) of the Field Colombian Museum, Chicago (now the Field Museum of Natural History)), or by William Henry Furness III (1866-1920), the brother of the principal author.
(Reusing this file)
The original publication was made in 1906 in the US and is therefore in the public domain. The 1962 edition should not have gained new copyright. Even if it did, it was published before 1978 without a copyright notice and is therefore in the public domain by now.
