Phonograph records are the discs pressed by the Victor Talking Machine Co. in Camden, NJ. c. 1940. (The quality of the sound argues for a date much later that 1917.) A tape dub of the discs was made at some time, but it cannot be located. Nevertheless, the dub--not the discs themselves--was used for digitizing. The text published by Boas in 1917 has been scanned. The WAVE file is now converted to an MP3.
