Portion used

The section of the original image containing the signature. This is the amount needed to identify the signature, and compare it with other signatures to attempt to identify the artist.

Fair Use Image Rationale
Purpose of use The image is used as a means of visual identification of the artist's signature, and for comparison with other such signatures.

As a portion of a work of published commercial art, the image is not replaceable by free content; any other image that shows the signature on the same work of art would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification.


The use of this image, in connection with research into the bibliographic status of various works of art, as part of the ISFDB, a non-profit bibliographic reference work, on servers located within the United States, is believed to constitute Fair Use within the meaning of United States copyright law.

Reusers of the ISFDB's content should take care to be sure that their use conforms to applicable copyright law -- not all such uses will constitute fair use, and copyright law varies significantly in different nations.
