Description

    A rare opportunity to own an original "Earthrise" photo.

    Apollo 8: NASA Color "Red-Number" Earthrise Photo (AS8-16-2383) with Nine other Original Images. One of the most iconic photos of the twentieth century, taken by Apollo 8 from lunar orbit on December 24, 1968, just months before the first moon landing. It shows the earth "rising" over the lunar horizon. This 10" x 8" glossy example has the marginal caption in red: "NASA/ AS8-16-2583 2383" (the incorrect "2583" number has been crossed out and "2383" handwritten). Pristine condition save for a small processing flaw at upper right only visible under raking light. Also included with this historic photo are the following (all in pristine condition):
    S-64-22003. Color glossy, 8" x 10", photo number in red. Gemini/ Titan-II launch vehicle liftoff at Cape Kennedy, Florida on April 8, 1964.

    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.
