Default Help with boxing photos?

Can someone on this board give me any information on this item,
Portfolio Picture Portraits of Famous Boxers? The cover is about 8" x 11'' with the photos about 6" x 8". Published by Fleetway Press Ltd.
The boxers are Soldier Jones, George Cook, Jack Dempsey, Georges Carpentier, Ted Kid Lewis, Jim Beckett, Bom. Billy Wells and one that I don't know (Photo in last scan).
I don't know if the autographs are good or not. I am not an autograph person at all. Not all of them are signed which seems strange if you read the title page.
Any help will be appreciated. Sam Majors smajors234@yahoo.com

Interesting. Looks British. The last boxer is Eugene Criqui. The autographs look like stamps to me.

Never seen it before. Looks like a neat collection of supplement type photos.

Here is a reference to a similar book, by the same publisher, from 1933:

Default Thanks!

Thanks to Dave and Sthoemke for the information! I've found some information on why they were made. I'll try to post it later. Sam Majors
