Is it in Chris Benjamin''s non sport book? I have looked in the British Trade book and there is no listing for Put am so I think that it is a US issue. Also note that Putnam reissued some of the books with different titles and to me the booklist may reflect that.

I received a few replies. One collector said this:
"In addition to what has already been stated- the type face and principles bring style is period correct- and the listed price per volume of 1.50 is a big clue to age- linking these to the late 1940s early 50s printing. You are correct that these are advertising “handouts”. These cards were used by door to door salesman, a common practice at the time. The block print is a monochrome of the 1887 edition trichrome cover."
