    Apollo 8 Large Color Moon Photo Taken During Transearth Coast Signed by Walt Cunningham and Originally from His Personal Collection. A 15.5" x 19.5" photo on heavy and stiff stock of a nearly full moon, taken on December 22, 1968, from lunar orbit by Apollo 8, signed in silver ink in a dark area: "Apollo 8 - Christmas '68/ Walt Cunningham/ Apollo 7". This was, of course, the first manned lunar mission. The crew of Frank Borman, James Lovell, and Bill Anders entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, sending a television broadcast back to Earth. They headed towards home the next day. Signatures of Borman and Lovell could possibly be added if so desired. Full caption on verso. Part of a group of photos presented to Cunningham personally by Victor Hasselblad in 1972 during a special ceremony in Stockholm. Tiny holes at corners for hanging, excellent.

    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.
