This is the only music sheet book for 1900s music I was able to find that is for piano/vocal. Many music sheets from this era are for the chord organ, which is no longer popular today. I bought this for my husband who recently restarted playing piano. He wanted something fun and cheerful to play, along Jeeves & Wooster lines, and not just hard classical music. These songs are perfect - you can sing along and the music is not too difficult. It is also not however, an EZ version that the Hal Leonard company also publishes. Furthermore, from what I can tell on the Hal website, there is no 1900s or 1910s "Essential Songs Series" version of the Decade books. If you're planning to buy the 1920s or other decades, you might want to check out both the "Songs of the 1920s: The Decade Series" and the "Essential Songs of the 1920s Series" to compare which songs you like better. The Essential series tends to have around 100 songs, the Decade around 50 or so. The difference is that the Decade series actually starts off with some historical commentary on the decade, the popular music trends, pictures, etc. The Essential series does not have this. Please note that the Decade commentary is very American focused, and so are some of the songs. However, most popular songs made it to both sides of the Atlantic, so the song content is probably not that much of an issue if you're European. In terms of content, the songs in the Decade and Essential songs overlap to an extent, but not a huge one. In fact, the Decade series tends to have a lot of stuff not in the Essential series. So you might want to buy the two books for each Decade.

This is one of the few songbooks I can find from this vintage decade, although I'm not sure why there aren't more as this was when music was at its most original and many of our anthems and patriotic songs were created during the turn of the century to the 20th century. Timeless classics like Take Me out to the Ballgame, Yankee Doodle Dandy, and Grand Old Flag are just a few of the songs in this book that still are played every day to audiences of thousands of people. Not only does this book contain many quality songs, but also a nice summary of what was going on during this decade, and how it impacted our culture. Its really a great book and one of the few books of this time period.
