1822/2011 (approx). WORLD OF GYMNASTICS. Exhibition collection, often decorated with gold and large gold, on 128 sheets in 3 folders (30 exhibition documents from the period 1995 to 2017 are enclosed, in whose sequence the development of the collection can be followed very nice). The collection is divided into 8 main chapters with various subchapters: 1-Stretching, swinging and whirling. 2-Meet new ideas. 3-Comrades unite and fight. 4-Combination of strength and suppleness. 5-Combination of strain and charm. 6-Flexibility with left and right. 7-Jumping into the air. 8-Jumping, turning and climbing. There is a considerable number of high quality items as for instance: Austria 1962 "Sport" (Mi. #1121) as imperforated single proof in grey-ultramarine (FA Soecknick (2014): hitherto first known piece), an 1822 military letter sent by Crownmail in Aland provided with a wonderful white feather, a caricature Mulready from 1840 "Fores's Musical Envelope", a German Reich Olympic entire card bearing the very rare Olympic cancel "Pressehauptqartier" (missing 'u' in 'qartier'; only used in the morning of the 27th of July 1936). In further there are many different proofs (also for Bavarian private postcards), artworks, special cancellations, as well as various interesting things, as for example V-Mails, advertising letter card and ad telegram, Theresienstadt form announcing that one special 'admission stamp' is enclosed, fancy cancellation 'bags of dollars', and so on. In addition there are 9 stockbooks with many covers and (picture) entire cards showing more special cancellations and usages, and a folder with general information about gymnastics. Conclusion: the collection is worth visiting (and buying, of course).
