Eugen Sandow (born Friedrich Wilhelm Müller, April 1867 – 14 October 1925) was a legendary Prussian bodybuilder and showman. He is considered the "father of bodybuilding".
Born in Königsberg, Sandow became interested in bodybuilding at the age of ten during a visit to Italy.After a spell in the circus, Sandow studied under strongman Ludwig Durlacher in the late 1880s.
In 1901 he organised what is believed to be the world's first major body building competition. Set in London's Royal Albert Hall, Sandow judged the event alongside author Arthur Conan Doyle and athlete/sculptor Charles Lawes-Wittewrong.
For sale one of his reference works „Kraft und wie man sie erlangt” translated as Strength and how to obtain it.
No recorded year, but around 1910. In good state. Basically a very clean book. Just a broken page (but there are no missing parts), and some very rare and easy pencil notes. A small red mark on the cover. The pictures are part of the description.
