QUESTION: publishing rights

question / pregunta: 

i'm interested in trying to get hugo gellert's 1934 book "marx's 'capital' in
lithographs" (New York, R. Long & R.R. Smith) republished.

i'd like to make it available in a popular edition with an introductory essay.

however, i can't seem to find any details about the imprint (which i
suspect doesn't exist anymore) and so i don't know who holds the rights to
the book. since it's from 1934, i'm not sure if it's yet in the public domain.

can you please tell me who holds the rights to this book?
