A friend of mine in South Africa, Isabel Hofmeyr, passed on this image
of the first page of the first edition of the English translation of
Gandhi's "Hind Swaraj" - or "Indian Home Rule" in translation. The book
was published in South Africa in 1909, and is rarely available. Isabel
was able to see it courtesy Uma Dhupelia-Mesthrie, who owns a copy.

And the copyright legend on this front page? It reads:

"No rights reserved"

Isabel and Uma kindly offered to donate the image to Commons, and you
can see it here:

Finally, an answer to the great copyright question that has never been
asked: "What would Gandhi do?" :)
