Date of publication: not 1728 (impossible, with works from all eras within!) , but possibly as late as the 1935 on the back cover. A 1913 publication
mentions an early edition of this ("Ellis's catalogue of rare and interesting books of and relating to music" - Ellis printed a number of catalogues, so of this specific catalogue); this by contrast is- see the first few pages- volume 26, not 2 or 3, of the music edition (again this specific series) and volume 207 overall (since the 1728 founding? - also consistent with 1935.) Still, since the 1935 date is not given as ©, only inferrable, it's probably within US public domain to the best of this writer's knowledge (since US copyright requires an actual © notice, with date, and registration for post-1922 items, up to a recent date- though NIAs/renewals can be placed to recover from such errors on post-1922 copyrights, which is why a close reading for such renewals in the (US public domain, since gov. doc.) LoC Catalog of Copyright Entries 1923-present is indeed a Good Idea).
