Can i  photocopy original magazine  artwork advertisment cutouts for clipart?  Most would be dated from magazines from the periods of 1914-1920's.  Would i then hold the copywrite on those sets of images, bound together as a booklet?
 
Thanks!!

Material published prior to 1923 should be in the public domain.  If so, you can copy the material with impunity.  Anything later than that could possibly be protected by copyright.
 
Assuming there was some creativity in selecting/arranging the images you could have a copyright in the compilation or derivative work, but of course that would not prevent someone from copying individual images from your work.
