Invitation notes, indulgence letters, announcements of church and fraternity
feasts etc., even if they are only being reprinted, may also not be put to print
without the imprimatur
of the Imperial and Royal censorship.
Imperial decree of 16 October and 21 February 1783.
Those printers who henceforth print the slightest thing - even if it were
only to consist of a few lines - without the censor's imprimatur
to be strictly fined a penalty of 6-12, or depending on the circumstances, even 24
ducats, to be paid into the relief fund for almshouses.
Directive in Bohemia, issued on 28 February 1782.
In future, a copy on writing-paper of all newly printed works is to be
delivered to the university library [in Prague?] for the use of all who wish to
consult it, irrespective of whether a work has been put to print at the expense
of the author or of the publisher.
Directive in Bohemia, issued on 21 December 1781.
Whenever a brochure or work is printed, the true author's name must
always be included (it must not be a fictitious name): otherwise, the imprimatur
will not be granted. This is also to apply to anonymous works approved previously
