    Description

    The iconic image

    Apollo 8 "Earthrise" Original NASA "Red Number" Color Photo, AS8-14-2383. A vintage chromogenic 10" x 8" print on Kodak fiber-based paper bearing the "A Kodak Paper" watermark on the verso. This is one of the most iconic images of the entire twentieth century, taken from lunar orbit in December 1968 of the Earth as it rises over the horizon. These originals are rarely offered and this one is beautiful with a couple of minor dents seen only under raking light, pristine otherwise. A rare opportunity. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.
