Tour De France 1938


  • ~Catalog 55~
  • 32e. Tour De France

    It's a race that can be over 2000 miles, takes a better portion of a month, stretches from the Sea to the Alps throughout Europe, and is the largest bicycle race in the world. Beginning as a publicity stunt for a newspaper in 1903, it has continued annually stopping only for the two world wars that crossed its course and has grown into the herculean drama that is the Tour De France. The 1938 Tour was the first win for Gino Bartali, who won the tour again in the 1940's, after the conclusion of WWII.

    Condition is good, with some soiling, wear, and manuscript notation, and a lower right corner with loss. Image size is 24x 19(inches).
