It has 64 pages, + 8 pages of 3D photos, thick bevelled boards with four recesses to hold the100 original stereographs
(2-2/7" x 5") and the metal viewer.
It consists of a well-written text by former boxer Ludwig Haymann on the subject of the

The photos show the opening ceremonies, Olympic flags and bells, the Reichssportführer Hans von Tschammer und Osten,
the Olympic Stadium, the Dietrich Eckart Stage on the Olympic Grounds in Berlin, the Olympic Village, notable dignitaries, winter
and summer sports venues, spectators, the Olympic torch, athletes of all sorts in competition, Olympic medals, television equipment
broadcasting the Olympic Games, the filming of the Olympics, Leni Riefenstahl, members of the press, autograph seekers,
