    "What? WHAT! NO! Wrong OH!! HELP! !! ?"

    Gemini 6A Confidential Gemini Program Mission Report GEMINI VI-A Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Pilot Walter Schirra, Signed. A rare and desirable mission report on the Gemini 6A mission with numerous comments and annotations in Schirra's handwriting throughout, many of which show apparent disagreement with the information as printed. It is boldly signed on the front cover: "Walter M. Schirra" (1923-2007). This is an illustrated 8" x 10.5" 346-page report with several pull-out charts, three hole-punched and stapled. The front page lists the date as January 1966, the part number as "MSC-G-R-66-2", the serial number as "256"; it is marked twice as "CONFIDENTIAL" and it notes that will downgrade to totally declassified after 12 years. Internally, each page is titled as either "Unclassified" or as "Confidential". An incredibly interesting and detailed summary of this mission offering great insight to Schirra's opinions on certain of the data as presented (see headline above for examples). Very fine condition with just some light soiling on the front cover and light use.
