This book contains Sheet Music reprints of first or early editions of 81 piano rags from 1897 to 1922.   Included are works written by ragtime greats such as Scott Joplin, James Scott, and Joseph Lamb.  All 81 selections are piano rags and therefore have no lyrics.  The publisher thanks Mr. Trebor Jay Tichenor and Mr. William Lloyd Keepers for the generous loan of sheet music to make these reprints possible.

PUBLIC DOMAIN STATUS: All selections are reprints of original or early editions with copyright date and publisher shown.  All are believed to be in the public domain in the United States.   Public domain status may not apply in countries outside of the United States where copyright protection may exist.
