    Description

    Lunar map used by the Apollo 17 crew while in lunar orbit.

    Apollo 17 Flown "Gagarin" Map from the CSM Lunar Landmark Maps Book, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan, Signed and Certified, with COA. A three-hole punched 10.5" x 8" lunar map on photographic paper, image size 7.5" x 7.5"; Cernan has titled it "Gagarin". In the wide margin at right is attached a 2.25" x 3.25" certificate signed by Cernan as Apollo 17 Commander. It states (beneath an Apollo 17 mission insignia): "The Eugene A. Cernan Space Collection/ The crew used this flown Apollo 17/ - CSM Lunar Landmark Map - / to study the Moon from lunar orbit/ [signed] Gene Cernan". This page, image numbered 0292, was removed from the complete CSM Lunar Landmark Maps book with a part number of "SKB32100123-322" and serial number "1001". It has been attached using archival corner mounts to a dramatic color photographic display of 13" x 19" showing Gene Cernan holding the complete flown book against a beautiful background photo of the Apollo 17 Command Module America orbiting the moon. The caption reads: "Gene Cernan holds the Apollo 17 Command Module 'Lunar Landmark Map Book' from which this map originated, in front of a photograph of the Command Module 'America' within which this map was actually used in lunar orbit." Gagarin, named after the Soviet cosmonaut, is a large lunar impact crater located in the southern hemisphere on the far side of the moon. Included with this lot is an RR Auction Certificate of Authenticity. Excellent condition save for a very minor corner bump at lower left. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    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.
