Interesting brochure produced circa 1937 detailing the preparations
for the XII Olympiad that was to be held in Tokyo in 1940. This
beautiful publication has cherry blossoms on the cover and many
photos of the future Olympic sites and schedules. This Olympics was
not to be, however, which makes this 31 page brochure even more
fascinating. It was withdrawn from Tokyo due to the outbreak of the
Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937 and ultimately cancelled
indefinitely because of WWII. NM condition.
