    Description

    Apollo 8 "Earthrise" Original NASA "Red Number" Color Photo, AS8-14-2383. A vintage chromogenic 10" x 8" print on Kodak fiber-based paper bearing the "A Kodak Paper" watermark on the verso. This is one of the most iconic images of the entire twentieth century, taken from lunar orbit in December 1968, of the Earth as it rises over the horizon. These originals are rare and very desirable. Included is a vintage photocopy of the original NASA caption. There is a miniscule (pinhole size) "ding" at top and a tiny, very light crease at lower right. Both are visible only under raking light. Corners are sharp and the number is bright. This one is as nice an example as you are likely to find, essentially pristine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
