    GEMINI 5

    Gemini 5 Press Reference Book Signed by Four Gemini Astronauts, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gordon Cooper. A fully-illustrated, McDonnell Aircraft-published book of 123 pages, 8.5" x 11", dated July 1, 1965, and including a number of pull-out charts. On the Contents page, it is signed: "Richard Gordon/ GT-XI"; "Gordon Cooper/ GT5" (1927-2004); "Wally Schirra/ GT-6" (1923-2007); and "Tom Stafford/ GT-6, 9". Additional Gemini astronaut autographs could certainly be added at shows and private signings. Very fine.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on his personal letterhead from Gordon Cooper stating: "This Gemini Press Reference Book is from my personal collection. Even though it was designed for the press corps, I found it a great quick reference guide to have around before and after the my [sic] Gemini 5 flight. The illustrations and diagrams it contains helped many technical discussions to be completed in a timely manner."
