Castles (page 1/4)

Title: Castles

Author: Oman, Charles

City: London

Date: 1926

Total items: 33

Pictures from Castles by Charles Oman, K.B.E., M.A., All Souls College, Chichele Professor of Modern History in the University of Oxford; Member of Parliament for the University; Hon. LL.D. (Edin) and Fellow of the British Acadamy, etc. Published by the Great Western Railway, Paddington Station, London, 1926.

Sir Charles Oman appears not to be regarded today as a good historian; see, for example, R. Allan Brown’s comments quoted at the soc.history.mediaeval web site maintained by Paul Gans.

Photographs in this collection are out of copyright, because they were taken in the UK and published before 1945 (as works-for-hier, commissioned by the Great Western Railway, in fact), but I am uncertan about the copyright of the other items, and they should not be used commercially. The copyright may have been held by the Great Western Railway, or by Sir Charles Oman (1860 – 1946). Most likely it was the Great Western Railway, in which case coyright expired 50 years after publication. But it would depend on the wording and nature of the contract between the railway company and the author.
