    Apollo Program: Apollo Spacecraft News Reference. Command and Service Modules. A softbound, heavily-illustrated, indexed 8.5" x 11" book of 304 pages, published by the Space Division of North American Rockwell in cooperation with NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center. Its purpose was to give the news media a comprehensive and technical reference manual for the upcoming Apollo moon missions; the last flight covered here was the Apollo 6 unmanned test flight. A particularly interesting section includes a glossary, a list of abbreviations, and "Apollo Briefs" which are quick facts ("filler") of the type that you used to hear during a slow part of the televised news coverage of a launch. For example: "The engines of the Saturn V launch vehicle that will propel the Apollo spacecraft to the moon have the combined horsepower equivalent to approximately 500 jet fighters." Generally fine condition with some staining on the covers.
