    Description

    Mercury Seven Astronauts: Martin Caidin's The Astronauts Book Signed by All. The Story of Project Mercury, America's Man-in-Space Program. (New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1960), first edition. Neatly signed on the half-title page by all seven of NASA's original Project Mercury astronauts, on separate lines: "Virgil I. Grissom", "M. Scott Carpenter", "Donald K. Slayton", "Walter M Schirra Jr", "John H. Glenn, Jr.", "Leroy G Cooper Jr", and "Alan B Shepard Jr". Note the early and desirable full forms of their signatures before shorter versions and nicknames became commonly used. It is signed on the front free endpaper: "Paul M. Sturtevant/ STG - 1960" (nice association). No dust jacket. Very good. From the personal collection of Gemini Program Office special assistant and longtime NASA employee, Paul M. Sturtevant.
