    Description

    Pearl S. Buck Autograph Manuscript Signed "What Has The Moon To Do With Us?" A five page handwritten article on three 8.5" x 11" plain sheets, circa 1960, with numerous cross-outs and corrections. It starts: "What has the moon to do with us, the Earth people? It hangs in the sky, moving in its appointed ways, known and unknown, influencing out tides, our times..." On page two, she writes: "Yes, I believe in space exploration. I believe because the human spirit demands the constant expansion of our life..." Quite interesting, possibly unpublished. Fine.
