    Apollo 13 Training-Used LM Systems Activation Checklist (Preliminary) Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed. This unflown 6" x 8" book, of approximately seventy pages printed on cardstock, is bound with two binder rings between two boards of heavier cardstock. The title page has the title "APOLLO XIII/ LM-7/ ACTIVATION CHECKLIST" and a date of February 6, 1970. This is the planned step by step outline of procedures from the entry and activation of the lunar module at about 83:00 into the mission through to the "go/no" go decision for undocking from the command module at 99:00 hours. Very interesting material that Lovell used in his training procedures. Of course, the crew spent much more time in the LM on this mission than originally planned due to its use as a "lifeboat" after the explosion in the service module. Very fine condition save for a stain on the front cover.

    Lovell has signed this book on the front cover: "James Lovell/ Apollo 13".
