The 1908 Olympic Games, the Great Stadium and the Marathon - A Pictorial Record (Signed by the Author, 2008)

£34.99

Product description

Published in 2008 by Society of Olympic Collectors. Copiously illustrated, in colour and black & white.

This book is a pictorial record of 1908 Olympic Games held in London and the Olympians who took part, as reflected in the postcards of the day, and the stamps issued to commemorate the Games.
As such it is an ideal collectors' handbook, but is also a complete overview of every event. The Edwardian era was the heyday of the postcard, and the book uses some 400 as illustrations, as well as postage stamps.

Signed gift inscription by the author on the title page.

In fresh and clean condition, with only a few light surface marks on the cover, and slight fading ton the spine. Binding tight, in unread condition.
