Joe Weider, born in Montreal, Canada, to Polish Jewish parents, has been one of the leading names in the muscle training programs for men in the world since 1940, when he started his first publication. Through the decades he became a publisher of several magazines for body builders, a developer of food for sportsmen and a producer of equipment for the bodybuilders.
Weider’s 1950s program offered a subscription for instructions for muscle development as well as pamphlets for sexual education and personally development.
This privately assembled Joe Weider’s muscle building kit was collected in an original folder, containing 3 lesions (of 7 issued), a guide for sex education, a personality build-up pamphlet, two magazines with photographs of bodybuilders (one of them being a rarer German version of Weider’s publications), a subscription envelope, and two poster-sized advertisements. Sporadic forms have been partly filled in by hand by a 17-year old.
