Another Public Domain question

I have just started work on Hoffmann's Strange Stories, having taken the text from the Internet Archive. The book was published by Burnham Brothers of Boston in 1855, but the translator is not named. Would this book be accepted as being in the Public Domain, and eligible to be added to the MR library?

I have nearly finished The Elementary Spirit by E.T.A. Hoffmann for the MobileRead library, but need help with a short conversation in French.
