Jim Thorpe's History of the Olympics (Signed by author and athletes)
by Thorpe, Jim
Los Angeles: Wetzel Publishing Co, 1932. First edition. Very Good -. This copy has the official stamp of the Olympic Village in Los Angeles, 1932 on the title page and is signed by approximately 50 athletes from the 1932 Olympic Games, including the author (and athlete) Jim Thorpe, who dated his signature July 23, 1932. Bookplate on the front end paper of Warwick Hayes, Jr. The book is in Very Good - condition on account of a fairly wobbly text-block, crack at the rear inner hinge and minor wear at the spine ends. Despite the so-so condition, this is likely the most interesting copy of this book extant, since it was clearly carried around the Olympic Village in Los Angeles and presented to a great number of the athletes to sign. Very Good -.
