Cigarettes and athletics. What a combination. The cover shows an athlete holding a cigarette above his head and smiling lovingly at it. This Bulgarian sports information book, published in Dresden and written in German, is one of the most unique pieces you'll ever find. It has 210 photos of the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles accompanied by text. Many of the photos are covered in the original wax paper and include one of Babe Ruth with Max Schmeling, Johnny Weissmuller, Charles Lindbergh, Gertrude Ederle, Walter Hagen, Sonja Henie (2), Paavo Nurmi, and Schmeling by himself. The book is in ex condition.
