Pictures from Life and Work of the People of England: The Fourteenth Century by Dorothy Hartley (art teacher at the Polytechnic Institute, London) & Margaret M. Elliot, B.A. Lond. (St. Aloysius Secondary School, London.), Putnam’s, New York and London, 1929.

This book is one of a series; I have several others. I turns out that copyright was renewed for this publication on 28th Feb 1957, so it and the images in it are still under copyright. However, pictures in the book that reproduce out-of-copyright images are themselves out of copyright.
