Presumably the 1923 data is a reference to the usually applied cutoff date for public domain copyright status in the U.S.

I have just noticed the following, searching GBooks for "pluche":

Spectacle de la Nature: Or, Nature Display'D. Being Discourses on Such ...?
Nol Antoine Pluche - 2010 - 412 pages
This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923.
No preview available - About this book

The comment about 1923 must reflect some additional processing?
