I have some older maps I bought in France that I would like to post online. One is from the 1800's and the other from 1947. Both are pages from larger atlases that were separated by the seller. Can I post images of these maps, or at least portions of these maps? How does copyright affect use in this case?
From what I've gathered, copyright on the 1800 one has long expired, so that's in the public domain. The 1947 one is trickier, unless the author died at the same time

3. In cases where the name of the author and the source are clearly indicated,
a) Analyses and short citations justified by the critical, polemical, scientific or pedagogical nature of the work.
I wanted to post these maps with an educational analysis. This appears to at least allow such posting of pieces of the 1947 map?
