I recently bought an old Columbia-Minerva pattern book at a local thrift store. I was trying to find out when this was published and can't find any dates or copyright notes in the book.
The only thing I found was this statement on the last page:
"Boye" products are used exclusively by our design staff in creating the fashions illustrated in this book and are specified herein in accordance with an agreement whereby the buplishers receive consideration for such specification.
Is this considered a copyright? There aren't any dates on this at all.
The book's called: Columbia Minerva Beehive Baby Book volume 723 and has a price of 60 cents.
Anyone know when this was published?
