Volume IV. The Games; Sixteen Days in Summer.
456 pp. Printed December 9, 1992.
This volume covers the Games in detail, the opening and closing ceremonies, the Olympic torch run, the cultural Olympiad, the various residences for athletes, officials, press, etc., services, statistics and tables.
A fifth volume, with black covers, was produced and has been incorrectly identified by some organizations and collectors as part of the Official Report.
The fifth volume is a compilation of the Results in a statistical manner. From the physical appearance of the volume it looks like it is part of the Official Report -- but it is not. It is a separate publication.
In previous Olympic Games similar Results were published in a different and less expensive format made available to the public. This 1992 volume of Results (black covers) was produced by the same team that produced the Official Report, but this volume was not made available to the public as were the other four volumes (red, blue, green and yellow covers).
The editor, Roma Cuyas, described these publications briefly in Volume III, on pages 369-370, with a photograph of the four volume Official Report.
