DescriptionGordon Cooper Signed Book with Handwritten Last Lines from The Right Stuff Movie: This New Ocean. A History of Project Mercury. By Lloyd S. Swenson, Jr., James M. Grimwood, and Charles C. Alexander. (Washington, D.C.: NASA, 1966). Part of the NASA Historical Series (SP-4201). 681 pages. Illustrated. Publisher's original hardcover binding. On the free front endpaper, Gordon has written in black ink: "On a glorious day in May 1963/ I flew the Faith 7 spacecraft higher/ and farther than any other Mercury/ astronaut, making me for this day/ the world's greatest pilot anyone/ ever saw!/ Gordon Cooper/ Mercury Atlas 9". This is a condensation of the closing narration from the 1983 film in which Dennis Quaid portrayed Cooper. Rare as such. Fine.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
