Thanks for the pictures.
Your album was produced prior to 1929, when the Victor Talking Machine Company became RCA Victor. In researching the song titles, I found that most were recorded around 1915.
If all the records and the album cover are in perfect condition, the current fair market (private sale or auction) value of this set is approximately $150.
