Default Beatles picture discs

Hello,

I would like to know how many, if any, Beatles picture discs have been released officially.

I've just bought a couple of them, because the pictures looked great and the discs themselves seemed good thick vinyl, although I didn't expect much from their sound. I don't think they're official, although I know nothing about them. The pictures are those of the jackets of the two commemorative LPs of the Beatles' visit to Japan ("Please Please Me" and "With the Beatles"), but I don't know much about those, either. The songs are the same as in the normal albums, although their order is different. They are these:

Anyone has any information on them?

I don't know anything about those records but I do have official picture vinyls of Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road. Haven't played them in years but I might check them out again for the sound quality.

Is it true that those picture discs shouldn't be played too often, because the paint can come off? Mine seem to be very solid, but anyway I don't think I'll end up playing them too often. The new vinyl releases sound much better .

I don't recall of harm coming to the pictures over time but it could be possible.
