Re all these works from "Kassel 1698":
I see no copies in modern libraries of first editions dated 1698 (or with no dates on them but estimated to have been published in 1698), and confusingly a modern printed edition says

"Facsimile reprint of the manuscript found in the Gesamthochschul-Bibliothek der Stadt Kassel published 1698".

So was it "published 1698" or is it a manuscript produced in 1698, but not actually typeset and published by any late-17th-century printer (... or even, that I can tell, before 1965?) The mind swirls in confusion... - Schissel (to phrase my question briefly- ok, fine, this was composed ca.1698. RISM even lists a few things from that 1698 manuscript copy. But it seems to be just that, a -manuscript copy-. When was it actually first -published-? Those really are two separate questions.)

The Montezuma decision has made it much more difficult for those inclined to make absurd copyright claims to do so with works like this. They basically have to prove something was not published (in the legal definition of the term) in order to make an editio princeps claim. Even if a library made a single "transcription" (a manuscript copy) and sent it to another library, the work is considered to have been published. Carolus

Hrm-- interesting and positive (from my biased pov) (so long as for the "everyday" reader it is clear what "first publication" means :) ) Thanks- Schissel
