    Description

    Gene Cernan Signed Book: The Last Man on the Moon Inscribed "Hail Purdue!" Astronaut Eugene Cernan and America's Race in Space. (New York: St. Martin's Press, 1999). Written with Don Davis. First edition, fifth printing. Signed on the full title page in black ink: "Hail Purdue!/ Gene Cernan". "Gene Cernan's wild ride into history included a tortuous spacewalk devised, it seems, by Dante...with enough sacrifices and close calls to fill a lifetime." (Tom Hanks). Cernan is one of dozens of astronauts who attended Purdue. A must-have for any proud Boilermaker fan. Hardbound in a dust jacket, octavo, 356 pages, illustrated. Very fine.

    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.
