1920's Fox Trot Dance Band Music

I have run across a stack of dance band music my late father had from a dance band he belonged to, probably around 1930. Most is dated 1925. It consists of a 1st alto, 2nd tenor, trumpet, trombone, banjo, bass, some strings, and piano. A few have an oboe and flute part. Basically pre swing error. Maybe a collection of 20 or so pieces with the various voicings for each piece. Any value on this sheet music? I am considering revoicing some for a sax quartet.

    Probably a question for bona fide historians.  If I were in your position, I'd scan some PDFs and start looking for a specialist on that era of American music.
