    Gemini 12 Training-Used Procedures Master Book Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed, with Signed LOA. This approximately 100 page 5.5" x 8" book is held together with two binder rings between heavy cardstock covers. Titled on the cover: "Gemini XII/ Procedures Book/ Training Item/ Revised 10-12-66" with "MASTER" handwritten at top. It is signed in black ink: "James Lovell". The pages inside are heavily annotated showing that this book was thoroughly studied by Lovell as he prepared for this mission. Somewhat soiled and with heavy use internally, very good overall.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this Procedures Book was used during the training of Gemini XII. Gemini XII mission took off on November 11, 1966. This manual is from my personal collection of space artifacts and have been in my possession since the mission."
