About this Item

Quarto. 317, [3]pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over green cloth, with gold lettering on spine and olympic rings in gilt on front board. Photo-illustrated endpapers. Title page in blue and black lettering. Published by the Society for the Promotion of Olympism in the German Democratic Republic (DDR), this volume documents the athletes and the most memorable moments of the 1964 Summer Games known as the XVIIIth Olympiad*. This book is illustrated with numerous b/w and color photographic reproductions. Minor shelf wear. Slight age-toning along paper margin. Text in German. Dust-jacket in good+, binding and interior in good+ to very good condition. * The 1964 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XVIII Olympiad, was an international multi-sport event held in Tokyo, Japan from October 10 to 24, 1964. Tokyo had been awarded the organization of the 1940 Summer Olympics, but this honor was subsequently passed to Helsinki because of Japan's invasion of China, before ultimately being canceled because of World War II. The 1964 Summer Games were the first Olympics held in Asia, and the first time South Africa was barred from taking part due to its apartheid system in sports (South Africa was, however, allowed to compete at the 1964 Summer Paralympics, also held in Tokyo, where it made its Paralympic Games debut). Tokyo was chosen as the host city during the 55th IOC Session in West Germany, on May 26, 1959. These games were also the first to be telecast internationally without the need for tapes to be flown overseas as they were for the 1960 Olympics four years earlier. The games were telecast to the United States using Syncom 3, the first geostationary communication satellite, and from there to Europe using Relay 1. History surrounding the 1964 Olympics was chronicled in the 1965 documentary film Tokyo Olympiad, directed by Kon Ichikawa. The games were scheduled for mid-October to avoid the city's midsummer heat and humidity and the September typhoon season. The previous Olympics in Rome in 1960 started in late August and experienced hot weather. The following games in 1968 in Mexico City also began in October. Bookseller Inventory # 37674
