How to find if we would accept it
Is it on PG ? and does the Bibrec tag say it is PD. Yes
Is it on Haithi and do they say it is PD , probably

Is it a scan? Does it have a date printed in the scan ? Yes

Anne
Excellent. Yes, it's a scan with a clear copyright. Thank you.

I was worried everyone had to have access to the site and don't know much about Google books.
E agora, José?

Just as a comment - at least one of your list is about pirates in a way, but it's about a trip from China to the USA on a sailing ship and how they escaped the China Sea "pirates" who put out from shore and attacked the boat. It appears to be the villager's way of earning a living rather than High Sea adventures, so it may not be what people expect.
Yes, it's a diverse listing.

One day I'll do one with cutthroats and scoundrels.
E agora, José?

I would classify them more as action/adventure. There are battle scenes and blood and gore, but not the kind of building terror one finds in a horror story.
Ah -- swashbuckling boy stuff. :D
I'm afraid so. I'm a boy.
:lol:

I couldn't see it, but then I don't have a google play account and google also hides books from non-Americans often. Google puts many of its scans on Internet Archive , so if you were thinking some time about needing others to read it you should try Archive. In case you don't realise I'm trying the concept as stated by someone else, Give a man a fish and he eats and is hungry the next day, give a man a fishing line and he can keep on catching fish for life,

I'm afraid I don't understand.

I asked about Google books being allowed and you answered about how PD is determined.

Apparently Google books are, even though not everyone can see the resource. That's good to know.

I appreciate, as always, your assistance.
