This is an original printing of the final edition, dated June 27, 1969, covering every aspect of man's first steps on the moon, down to where each tool is stowed, where and how experiments are to be conducted, and even a checklist of which tools are being left behind. A softcover book of 184 numbered pages, 8" x 10.5", three hole-punched and bound with binder rings (originally stapled), prepared by the Lunar Surface Operations Office at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston. Fine condition with some wear and hole damage to the front cover.
From the Introduction: "This final edition of the Lunar Surface Operations Plan defines equipment requirements, crew/equipment interfaces, and final flight planning and crew activities for lunar surface EVA operations during the first manned lunar landing mission. This plan delineates how the lunar surface operational and scientific objectives for the first manned lunar landing mission will be accomplished through pre-mission timelining and procedures definition. Although the primary concern of this plan is the lunar surface EVA operational aspects of the mission, interface relationships are presented to provide clarity and continuity to the overall mission plan."
This interesting and important document was originally in the personal collection of Dr. John Lattimer (1914-2007), a legendary expert in the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations, and a world-renowned collector of historical documents and relics. His initials and acquisition code is at the upper left of the front cover. Heritage had the privilege of offering his unsurpassed collection of Lincolniana in November 2008 (Auction #6014).
