    Description

    Apollo 11 Training-Used "LM-LO Star Chart" Directly from the John W. Young Collection, with Letter of Certification. A degree-divided 8.25" circular black chart, a pinhole at center, with white printing, titled "LM-LO/ STAR CHART (A)/ LAUNCH JULY 18/ 23 July 19:27:23.1 GMT". The Sun, Earth, Venus, and Saturn are portrayed by larger colored dots and several of the stars and constellations are named including "DNOCES" (actually Iota Ursae Majoris) and "NAVI" (actually Epsilon Cassiopeiae), two of the stars named for the crew of the ill-fated Apollo 1. Very fine.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed by Young's widow, Susy Young. It reads, in full: "I hereby certify that the LM-LO Star Chart (A) Launch July 18 that accompanies this letter was used in training for the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon July 16-24, 1969. It has been a part of the John W. Young collection since that time."

    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.
