IANAL, but my guess is that the copyright was published in the US without formalities and that the original copyright was not renewed. So I’m guessing that Penguin is in the right here. But 1)both editions cost $10 for an ebook, which is outrageous and 2)this should be a clear signal to Project Gutenberg (or some other organization) to start digitalizing it and offering it for free.

It would be different if Penguin were selling the public domain ebook with a new preface at something like 3.99, but why are they selling it at the same usual high price?
