No way they're electric if he died in 1913. What is the contents, and what label are they on?

Dear friends,

Recently I've acquired 2 volumes of 78 rpm discs of Erich J. Wolff singing and accompanying himself on piano.  Wolff died March 20th 1913.  How is it the recordings are the way they are?  I mean, they are as good as contemporary mid century ones.  Wouldn't they be acoustic?  They appear to sound electric.
