Soyuz 4 & 5 Original Space-Transmitted Docking Photos Signed by Soviet Officials. Seven B&W glossy photos, each 3.5" square, mounted in a progression on a 24" x 6.5" sheet. These photos show a "time-lapse" view of the docking of the two spacecraft on January 15, 1969. This was not only the first docking of two manned spacecraft but also the first transfer of crewmembers from one to the other. Soyuz 4 launched with one occupant, Soyuz 5 with three. Two of the Soyuz 5 cosmonauts transferred to Soyuz 4 for return to earth while the Soyuz 5 commander landed alone. Signed at the Baikonur Cosmodrome on the wide bottom margin by the head of the USSR space program Vasily Mishin as well as by various spacecraft designers and engineers Boris Chertok, Mikhail Ryazansky, Yevgeni Frolov, and Konstantin Feoktistov, and by Kerim Kerimov. Rare and unique. Fine condition.
