    Description

    Apollo 17 Flown "South Imbrium" Map from the CSM Lunar Landmarks Maps Book, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan, Signed and Certified. A three-hole punched 10.5" x 8" lunar map on photographic paper, image size 7.5" x 7.5"; Cernan has titled it "South Imbrium". In the wide margin at right is attached a 2.25" x 3.25" certificate signed by Cernan as Apollo 17 Commander. It states (beneath an Apollo 17 mission insignia): "The Eugene A. Cernan Space Collection/ The crew used this flown Apollo 17/ - CSM Lunar Landmark Map - / to study the Moon from lunar orbit/ [signed] Gene Cernan". This page, image numbered 2595, was removed from the complete Lunar Landmark book with a part number of "SKB32100123-322" and serial number "1001". It has been attached using archival corner mounts to a dramatic color photographic display of 13" x 19" showing Gene Cernan holding the complete flown book against a beautiful background photo of the Apollo 17 Command Module America orbiting the moon. The caption reads: "Gene Cernan holds the Apollo 17 Command Module 'Lunar Landmark Map Book' from which this map originated, in front of a photograph of the Command Module 'America' within which this map was actually used in lunar orbit." Excellent condition save for some minor edge and corner dents that would be hidden by a frame.
