1 JACQUES CHARLAND 1952 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY AND PHOTO JOURNAL OF A YOUNG FRENCH CANADIAN SKI JUMPER'S TRIP REPRESENTING HIS COUNTRY AT THE OSLO WINTER OLYMPICS
OSLO NORWAY QUEBEC CANADA 1952 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is a super, original manuscript relic of Canadian Olympic aspirations and accomplishment at the 1952 Winter Olympic Games at Oslo Norway being a diary and photo journal handwritten and compiled by Jacques Charland who was a member of the Canadian Olympic ski jumping team in the 1950's and 60's. Mr. Charland does a great job documenting his trip to Oslo in 1952 to represent Canada as a premier ski jumper and provides a ground eye perspective of being an Olympic participant. The large, over-stuffed, 6 x 9½ inch, French language, save for the English inscription, diary contains 40 handwritten pages starting from his departure in January to his return in March of 1952. The first page is also signed by 20 members of the Canadian Olympic Team. Along with the narrative there are also 140+ original photos including many taken at the games and some newspaper clippings. Charland begins: "Three Rivers January 14th, 1951 (a mistake when he wrote 1951 because all of the pages after that are for 1952). "Jacques Charland, 1032 Chapleau St. 3-Rivers P.2. For my trip to Oslo, Norway and other European Countries. This book is for the purpose of an exact day to day report and of my first trip across the ocean, by plane, to foreign countries. [Signed] Jacques Charland." Most of the photos are snapshots and are black and white however there are also some color photos. They are not only of the games but also of his sight seeing adventures including the people he's with and met. It was difficult picking out the photos to share with you as I could have easily scanned most of them they are that good. The diary is about 6" x 9 ½" and is almost 2" thick. The first page has a cut out of it at the bottom but the rest of the pages look good even with some age toning. Possibly seven photos are missing as just the four cornered tabs are left but there are still 140+ photos in this journal. The marbled cover features some Olympic stamps. Overall G+.
