EXTRAORDINARY GERMAN WWII ALBUM -- 1936 OLYMPICS (Item OLY 2-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the finest German 1930's photo albums we have ever encountered. It opens with a page where the former owner glues in some of the official entrance passes and a chart of the flags of the countries of the competitors. Also, there is a sampling of the calligraphy and artwork that he decorates the pages with throughout the book. There are several 9 X 7 photos of the grounds and buildings such as the stadium and the Dietrich Eckart Thingplatz and the Finnish sauna at the Olympic Village, Horsemanship contests at the Mayfield, two wonderful pictures of acrobatic diving by American and German diving competitors, a great photo of the Italian and Austrian football match, a 9 X 7 photo of three-time gold-medal winner Jesse Owens (further proof of the snub issue being so much crap!). He certainly was honored by the Nazi who put this book together, right? There are two super pictures of the sailing and regatta events in 9 X 7 format. Also, most of the rest of the pictures are either 2 X 3 inch or 2 X -inch snapshots and a few special 5 X 4 inch pictures. There are a total of 145 pictures and many tickets, menus, invitations, and souvenir items to include a wonderful a 11-page booklet that shows and explains the monument to Paul von Hindenburg's victory over the Russians at Tannenberg. A few of the pictures are postcards. The album seems to have belonged to a German Army Cavalry Gefreiter by the name of Hefferich who was attached to the 1st Squadron of the Cavalry Regiment Number 6, which was a traditions squadron that grew from the former Grossherzog Hessian Garde Dragoons Regiment Number 23. At the last part of the album are pictures of Fahentragers, flag bearers, of the regiment, and Gerf. Hefferich is probably one of them. There are also very nice pictures of the barracks and regimental headquarters. There are poems by Rittmeistere B. von Schellendorf, who was the adjutant in the 6th. There are furlough passes for the Gefreiter as well as a notice of a comrade's evening and dance sponsored by the 6th Cavalry. There are vacation passes, etc. The pictures of the regimental standards are ultra-exceptional. To fully describe all that this most wonderful album contains would necessitate many pages of writing and numerous pictures. We have done our best to convey to you the general idea and feeling of this most important and beautiful archival treasure of the Third Reich era. In 43 years at this we have seen none better.

PRICE: No longer available.
