Hello,

I am a PhD student intending to publish a scholarly article that has been accepted by a famous journal in my field of research.
I wish to include in the article a map that I have adapted from an original map published in a book dating from 1968 (This was the book's second edition; the first one dates from 1891). The book's publisher (F. Cass) has since then been bought by the Taylor & Francis group, that is why I asked permission from the latter to publish the adapted map.
Taylor & Francis were unable to trace the work/copyright owner as belonging to them. They recommended me to use a copyright disclaimer and fully acknowledge the original publication.

Could you clarify what it means to use a copyright disclaimer?

I should perhaps add that the book's author died in 1953 (less than 70 years ago), and that he did not clearly identify any other author/creator with regards to the map (in the book's acknowledgments).

Thank you and best wishes,
Iris

Well disclaimer means a renouncement of rights or claim, so I imagine that the simply mean that when you write your copyright notice you explicitly state that this copied work is not your own and acknowledge the source.

I.e. copyright 2008 Iris, (except [name of copied content], originally published by F. Cass, owner unknown).
