LIKELY IN U.S. PUBLIC DOMAIN

These are books by authors I suspect to be US citizens, books by non-US citizens that I suspect to have been first published in the US, and books by non-US citizens that I believe were published in the US in the same year as they were published abroad & so may not have been first (ie, by at least 30 days) published abroad.
