I'm using about 12 quotations in a book I'm writing.
I got many of them from one book--the definitive adult
biography of the subject about whom I'm writing a
children's biography. But I'm not quoting the author of
that biography; I'm quoting a 17th-century scientist and his
contemporaries. But in most cases, I did not see the primary sources.
I got the quotations from the other biography, which does cite
the original sources. Is it OK for me to use these
quotations without written permission from that book
publisher? They definitely fall under the Fair Use amount. The book I'm writing will include
a bibliography, but no footnotes. Thank you.
