Die Olympishen Spiele in Los Angeles 1932
Hamburg, Germany, H. F. & Ph. F. Reemtsma, 1932. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 142.Large 4to,,Bound in original deep blue cloth with black lettering,The 1932 Olympic Games were held in Los Angeles, which was the only city to enter a bid for the event. Because of the world depression, barely half of the number of competitors from the previous games, held in Amsterdam, were able to attend. As expected, the United States garnered more than the lion's share of medals, including a gold and silver to the famous woman athelete Babe Didrickson (see pp. 46, 50), and a gold medal to the Polish athelete, Stanislawa Walasiewicz, in the women's 100 metres (see p. 75). After Walasiewicz's death in 1980, it was revealed 'she' was intersexed, and thus was inelgible to compete. Kusuo Kitamura won the gold medal in the men's 1500 metre freestyle swimming event (see p. 65). He was only 14 at the time, and remains the youngest person to ever compete in an Olympics. Our copy has several hundred colour, and black-and-white photos, which have been neatly laid down on to their appropriate spaces in the book. Laid-in loose is a photograph of Olympic-class dinghies competing in the 1936 Olympics, which were held in Nazi-controlled Germany. The gilt on the interlocking rings on the front board has been partially rubbed away, and there is a bit of wear to the edges of the boards. A few spots of foxing to the contents. Otherwise, the book is in very good condition. Ill.: colour, b&w photographs.

From Rattlesnake Hunt to Hockey the History of Sports in Canada and of the Sportsmen of Peel / 1798 to 1934
Toronto, Perkins Bull Foundation, 1934. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. xxvii,564.Royal 8vo,,,William Perkins Bulls (1870-1948) was a successful lawyer and businessman, born in Downsview, Ontario. He was Timothy Eaton's personal solicitor, and in 1908 became the youngest King's Counsel (KC) in the British Empire. As a result of an automobile accident in 1931, and the ensuing lengthy convalescence, Bull began writing. He assembled a large group of researchers and interviewers, who scoured southern Ontario for anecdotes and photographs. His first two books appeared in 1934: 'From Medicine Man to Medical Man' and this title. The works are an eclectic mix of archival material, oral interviews, and folk traditions, all gathered together with little critical analysis or discrimination. Our copy shows light shelf wear (mainly bumping to the corners), and is in the scarce original dust jacket, which is now well-worn and sunned, but still intact and serviceable. There is an photo frontispiece of the imposing figure of the author, which is signed in the plate. Ill.: black-and-white photographs. Published in an edition of 1,000 copies. Addenda and errata slip tipped-in at front.
