Publishers Thomas Nelson & Sons identified Mary (1817-1893) and Elizabeth (1823-1873) Kirby as the “creators” of Aunt Martha’s Corner Cupboard in 1875. I’m not sure if that means they wrote and illustrated the book or not. But, whether one or both of them was the illustrator or some nameless artist provided them, they are easily in the public domain by any copyright standard.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
