產品簡介


The Treasures of the Olympic Games brings to life, through more than 200 photographs and 20 removable artefacts, the glorious history of the summer Olympic Games, illustrating the Olympic values that unite the world through sport every four years. Beginning in 776 BC in ancient Greece through to its revival in 1896 and the 26 subsequent Games, this exceptional title charts the event's absorbing and exemplary history as well as a wealth of world sporting achievement. A book of dreams, this is the first time that the Olympic Museum has co-operated in producing an interactive book containing facsimiles of rare historical documents from their exclusive archive, allowing readers to get closer to the world's greatest sporting spectacle than has ever been possible before.
