    Project Mercury NASA Familiarization Manual SEDR104, Dated December 1, 1962, by McDonnell Aircraft Corporation, for Manned Satellite Spacecraft No. 20 One Day Mission. An incredibly interesting 9" x 11" softbound book three-hole punched in a custom McDonnell binder, published between Mercury-Atlas 8 and Mercury-Atlas 9. The introduction states: "The Mercury Spacecraft described in this manual is designed for a one-day earth orbiting mission. This mission is an extension of the three-orbit and six-orbit flights of the Mercury Vehicle". A very interesting read that is well-illustrated with several pull-out charts. A very rare vintage publication, and the first of which Heritage Auctions has offered. Signs of moderate use, overall very fine.
