1936 Berlin Olympic Games Volumes. (Olympia 1936). Complete. Two volumes. These albums are both 9 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches (24.5 x 32cms), with a total of about 400 pictures some in colour and includes the detailed four page fold out plan of the Olympic venues. They were published by Cigaretten-Bilderdienst Altona-Bahrenfeld in Germany and are in excellent condition. They are priced at GB Pounds 95.00 (approx $125.00) plus postage. They are that price because of their condition and because they have still got their original covers which are also in very good condition which is rare for these volumes. 9 out of 10 of these books usually don't have any covers at all and if they do they are almost always really tatty.
These particular books are quite exceptional considering their age and it would be hard to find another pair as good as these. (Please see detailed photos for confirmation of excellent condition).
I have included the link http://www.od43.com/2x_1936_Olympia_ZBA_0317.html
where you can see almost identical volumes with covers and also in very good condition asking $265.00 (approx. GB Pounds 206.00) including postage.
These two volumes are the most comprehensive Nazi German publications about the 1936 Olympic Games - the Summer Games being held in Berlin where a great propaganda event was made out of them and the Winter Games took place at Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
It is interesting to note that contrary to what history has told us about the success of foreign athletes in the Games, the Germans were easily the most successful participating nation with a total of 89 medals (33 gold) against 56 (24 gold) for the United States and16 Hungary with 10 gold.
GB Pounds 95.00 plus postage which may vary slightly according to destination and buyers wishes.
