BSB Copyright Claims Removal

Postby dgljr5121973 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 2:35 am

How would I go about removing the copyright claims from files I get from the BSB, Google, etc.?

I think this is a Scanning and PDF Creation topic. Simple with pdftk if you want to remove the first copyright-claiming pages. http://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/

More difficult, but possible if there is a copyright claim or a logo at the bottom of each page.

OK. Have downloaded and checked it to see if it works. It does. Now, how does one with that software eliminate the aforementioned Copyright claims?

Open a command prompt. Change the directory to where pdftk.exe and your score are. To remove the first page type pdftk thisscore.pdf cat 2-end output thenewscore.pdf

From BSB, I prefer grabbing the image files for collection, and separating them by partbooks (not relevant to all things, but most non-lute and non-keyboard collections of the 16c are in partbooks).

Here are a couple bash/ksh scripts to help you, if you want:

http://plover.net/~agarvin/bsb-grab.txt

I grab the files, then manually split them into directories like 01-cantus, 02-alto, 03-tenore, etc, then run the second script against that.

I should probably put together all my scripts and post them here. Most are simple, but I have a few to paste together images that are only available in grid form (like at DIAMM) using pamundice.

pdftk can do this with the whole pdf, but you need to view the whole BSB pdf and write the page limits of each part on a paper and type the corresponding pdftk command for each part. I don't think a script is able to guess these page limits automatically. :-)

I found http://imslp.org/wiki/University_of_Munich_MSS_328-331_partbooks_%28Various%29#IMSLP277765 Is "Univ. Munich" the same as BSB? Then the scanner is BSB (with template {{BSB}} ). Otherwise could you please provide the link of Univ. Munich?

They're different places. BSB is the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bavarian_State_Library) and Univ. Munich is the München Universitätsbibliothek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_Max ... _of_Munich). The latter doesn't have near the music collection of the BSB, and also their scans are only available in uncompressed PDFs. I was able to shrink the PDF size by an order of magnitude with ghostscript.

You can get the originals at:

But the resolution has become much lower! (this is no longer the BSB Copyright Claims Removal topic). Can't you convert the pages to monochrome with the same resolution?

Thanks. I will look for other scores.
