Also, the Denver 1976 and Sofia 1992 sets look decent, I asked the seller for pictures so I got to see them. I also found the Toronto 1996 set, I emailed the seller for pics but no reply, probably sold or something. Also that Moscow 1976 book is too expensive.

If you're talking about the Abebooks person regarding the Toronto set then they sold long ago. The person just doesn't seem to take the listing down..

Quick question, did the 2004 applicants that never made the shortlist make bid books? I know Lille and San Juan did I'm talking mainly about Rio. Did Sochi make anything for 2002? Also, did Brasilia, Milan and Tashkent make anything for 2000?

Based on my findings, they did published the books, even if they were screened out of the final shortlist for the 2004 olympic vote. According to an entry in Google books, San Juan's bid was published

Abebooks!! Also I just purchased an Abuja 2014 set!!

I really don't think anyone would want to spend 416 pounds for a Moscow 1976 Bid Book!

That's Commonwealth games. And make sure you're in contact with the buyer before you send payment because sometimes users have items listed their for years that are sold or they no longer check abebooks so don't waste your money.

LordD, hang on to your bid books. After 2022, it looks like Candidature Files will only be in electronic form. So the Bid Books will be an extinct species.

It shouldn't be a rule, but just a guideline. Bid cities should be able to choose if they want to publish a proper book or not. It;s their expense after all.

Like if an Australian city were to bid, I assume a physical copy of the "bid file" would have to published and kept at the National Library of Australia, even if a digital copy were available.

And what if the IOC penalizes or gives you a warning? Do you really think it's worth disobeying a very "rule-based" organization just to please "bid book" collectors?? :rolleyes:
