...You’ve probably noticed that a lot of the content on the Brooklyn Museum website is licensed under a Creative Commons non-commercial attribution license. HathiTrust now offers that option to rights holders. It was a natural for us to jump in and offer pre-1990 Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Institute publications under CC terms, too. More recent books will come online gradually, as they go out of print and the stock dwindles (yes, we still want to sell books). And books that we co-published are going to take some legwork to acquire permission from partners...A quick survey of the currently available titles relating to antiquity yields the following:
Toilet articles from ancient Egypt, from the Charles Edwin Wilbour Memorial Collection and the Collection of the New York Historical Society in the Brooklyn Museum.Published 1943
Coptic Egypt;Published 1944
- Catalog Record
- (view record to see multiple volumes)
Five years of collecting Egyptian art, 1951-1956 : catalogue of an exhibition held at the Brooklyn Museum, 11 December, 1956 to 17 March, 1957.
