How Champions Train, a Study of Research Problems and Physiological Experimentations on Olympic Athletes at Berlin.
Self-published/ms. 1937 - This seems to be a carbon copy of the typed original, with occasional hand-written annotations; the piece is on an onion-skin-like paper, 11x8.5", 22 leaves. and bound at the top with two rivets, and using a heavier blue paper as support at the end of the paper. Bohm (1890-1971, and at the time with the department of Physical Education and Athletics at Washington State College) is widely recognized as one of the first athletic trainers to apply scientific and methods to sports training. The paper offered here is the result of a survey and observations made by Bohm while a training official for the U.S. Olympic team during the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, having the U.S. athletes fill out forms and questionnaires regarding their diets and exercises. Provenance: the Library of Congress via the U.S. Copyright Office. The Copyright Office received this copy of Bohm's paper, stamping it with a receipt date of March 8, 1937; it pencil on the back of the title it is noted that the paper was "trans. from Copyright" and received by the Library on October 5, 1938. Condition: overall in Very Good condition; the title has a few snags and chips and is dusted; there is also a "Surplus-1 Library of Congress Duplicate" stamp on the title/cover page. Probably a unique copy of a rare work--only one copy of some sort located via WolrdCat/OCLC at Washington State University--significant in the history of sports medicine. $950.
