4to. 14 ring hardcover binder measuring approximately 12" x 10". 13 pages containing 64 original black and white photographs. 55 snapshots, most 4.5" x 3.5", though many cut smaller; 8 in 8" x 10" format, 7 of which feature the same subject. Several ephemeral articles and clippings also present. Binder awkwardly rebacked with tape at spine and bearing a title hand written in thick black marker to the front cover. Photographs mounted to black adhesive pages, covered in clear plastic sheet overlays. All contents very good+ or better. Photo scrapbook belonging to John A. England of Lenexa, Kansas. The album records his coaching of the Korean national weightlifting team, including competitions at the 1962 Asian Games (held in Jakarta) and the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Dozens of clear snapshots show athletes in training. Ephemera consists of articles, clippings, a First Day Cover cachet from the '62 games, a program from a 1963 weightlifting competition, and a TLS of thanks to England from Byung Sook Suh, President of the Korean Weightlifting Association. Most striking is a series of six different 8" x 10" enlargements showing a buff, young Korean lifter in many classic bodybuilding poses (right). A stirring collection of the male physique.
