    Description

    Apollo 8 Large "Earthrise" Color Photo with Scripture Verses Signed by Borman and Lovell. A 20" x 16" silk-finish photo, one of the most iconic images of the twentieth century. On Christmas Eve of 1968, the Apollo 8 crew read and broadcast the biblical creation story back to earth from lunar orbit. This print has the verses printed in the dark background as read by each. Two of the crew have signed beneath their respective passages: "James Lovell/ Apollo 8 CMP" and "Frank Borman/ Apollo 8/ Commander", both in gold ink. A very impressive presentation. Excellent.

    Included with the lot are Certificates of Authenticity from Novaspace signed by Kim Poor for the James Lovell and Frank Borman signatures.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
