This year’s list includes the magnificently illustrated volumes of Cuban botany unearthed at Cornell University in 2018, a compilation of Egyptian medical knowledge c. 1550 BC, and a seminal text on modern marketing, identified as public domain through HathiTrust’s Copyright Review Program . Many scholars, as well as independent researchers and educators, find HathiTrust through the Prices and Wages by Decade website at the University of MIssouri, and several top titles are referred from that site.
