About this Item

Elephant folio. (Unpaginated). Maroon cloth with title stamped in gold on cover, corners of front board edged in decorative raised brass. Four raised studs on back cover. Elaborate publications with expensive bindings such as this were issued with brass studs to protect the cloth from wear and liquid spills. Slight corrosion to one of the studs. Minor staining and age wear on binding. Sporadic foxing throughout. Richly decorated endpapers. Rare album in alphabetical order, illustrated with 60 full-page photos in gravure of soldiers and officers in Kaiser Wilhelm's army (many of German nobility), as well as other personalities related to sports during World War I in Germany. Many of the photos show officers on horseback and in horse jumping- and dressage competition. Each plate with signature in facsimile below image, plates accompanied by a short biography with decorated illustrated initials and small drawing below text. Foreword by Dr. Friedeberger mentioning the importance of sport and fitness in German society to gain more strength in dealing with possible economic struggles and in case of a possible war forced upon Germany. "Auf allen Gebieten, die Leibesübungen betreffen, ist ein Wetteifer in deutschen Landen entstanden, der unser Volk tatkräftig machen soll, und diejenige Energie schafft, die sich sowohl im harten wirtschaftlichen Kampf, als auch eventuell in einem uns aufgenötigten Kriege als unsichtbare, aber doch stark wirkende Rüstung erweisen soll und wird." Text in German. Fascinating photographic work from the Imperial German period. Tight copy in overall very good condition. Only one known 1914 copy (same title, editor & publisher but different pagination) owned by the Staatsbibliothek Berlin. No electronic data found anywhere on this work.
