[Sca-cooks] Need (international) copyright advice

I just checked my copy. The work exists as a manuscript in a sole copy  
and this is the first publication, so this is not the case of a work  
having been published in the 16th century and being now out of  
copyright. The date of publication is 2009!

The only way that one has access to these recipes is through seeing  
the original manuscript in Austria or in using these two volumes.

I think this makes a difference.
