$5.25 - Album of Music 1890s - 1920s ? HC 
(4417-377 BO) antique books, music
(Book Resque)

I found no copyright nor printed date on this book but after researching the businesses that have ads in it I've come to the decision that it was sometime between the 1890s to the 1920s.  There is even an ad for a Chicago Hotel that charged $2.50 per night, with elevator.  It's a book of sheet music for piano - vocal & instrumental.  It's a 2nd edition that was published by International Publishing Company, 205, 207 & 209 State Street (corner Adams), Chicago, Ill.  Some of the music included is Barbe Bleue, Schutzen March, and Guards' Waltz.  The hardcover measures 14 x 10 (approx.) and contains 163 pages.  There is shelf and use wear on the cover with some separation starting on the inside.  The actual pages have yellowed but look great with very little wear.

(PLEASE READ: I’m elderly and can’t smell very well so I can’t tell if the previous owner was a smoker.  All books come from estate, tag or yard sales so I don't know if the previous owner was a smoker nor if they had an animal.  Selling as is.  Buy more than one item and save on postage.)
