About this Item

Quarto. 181, [3]pp. Original gilt stamped orange cloth, with gold lettering on spine and front cover. This volume documents the Equestrian Events at the 1956 Summer Olympics which were held in Stockholm, Sweden, due to the Australian quarantine regulations. They included Dressage, Eventing, and Show Jumping. All three disciplines had both individual and team competitions. The competitions were held from June 11, 1956 to June 17, 1956 at Stockholms stadion. There were 159 entries from 29 countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Federal Republic of Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherland, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Soviet Union, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, USA,and Venezuela. This would be the first appearance for Australia, Cambodia and Venezuela in equestrian events. Although Melbourne was awarded the 1956 Olympic Games, Australia had a strict six-month pre-shipment quarantine on horses. A meeting in 1953 by Australian federal authorities ruled that they would not change the quarantine laws for the Olympic horses. Therefore, the equestrian competition would not be able to be held in Australia. In 1954, the IOC selected Stockholm, Sweden as the alternate venue for the equestrian events. Therefore, the equestrian events were not only separated by city or country, but also continent. Additionally, it would be the single time in Olympic history that there was not unity in time or place between all sports, with the equestrian event being held in June (summer in the northern hemisphere) and the other sports held in November (late spring in the southern hemisphere). This book is splendidly illustrated throughout with numerous b/w photographic reproductions. Text in German. Binding and interior in overall very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 37698
