    Description

    Apollo 11: Michael Collins and Paul Calle Signed Limited Edition, #AP16/25, "Apollo XI Liftoff" Print, from the Calle Family Collection. A 17" x 22" print of a pen and ink sketch made by Calle on July 16, 1969, of the Saturn V launch vehicle as it left the pad with the Apollo 11 craft and crew. Signed by Calle at lower left, signed by Michael Collins just above. Excellent.

    "When the Saturn V fired, it took so long for that huge rocket to leave the ground that everyone was urging it to go- as if cheering helped it move. And the silence- the rocket was blasting away, a you couldn't hear anything, just people screaming, "Go, Go!' Then slowly, it lifted off the pad on a column of fire and smoke, and then the thundering sound waves rolled over us. Now everybody was screaming, and some were crying. What a moment! People were hugging each other as Apollo 11 disappeared into the sky." -Paul Calle

    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.
