The 1501 edition of Virgil
The John Rylands Library houses one of the finest collections of books from the press founded at Venice by Aldus Manutius in 1495 and continued by his successors until 1598. The Library has all but seven of the 127 authenticated editions produced up to 1515, including this 1501 edition of Virgil which pioneered the use of italic type.

From First Impressions:

This copy of the Aldine edition of Vergil was printed on vellum and illuminated by hand. Vergilius Maro, Opera (Venice: Aldus Manutius, 1501), A3r. JRL 3359.

Faithful reproduction of a public domain book.

Other versions

Derivative works of this file: Virgil 1501 Aldus Manutius (Italika).jpg

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.

Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Jamaica has 95 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term. Copyright may extend on works created by French who died for France in World War II (more information), Russians who served in the Eastern Front of World War II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia) and posthumously rehabilitated victims of Soviet repressions (more information).

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
