DescriptionMercury Seven Astronauts Signed Book (By All): We Seven by The Astronauts Themselves. (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1962). First edition, first printing. Neatly signed on the illustrated free front endpaper in blue and black inks as follows: "Best regards to/ Enzo Stuarti--/ J H Glenn, Jr", "W M Schirra Jr", "Scott Carpenter", "Gus Grissom", "Gordon Cooper", "D K Slayton", and "Alan B Shepard Jr". Enzo Stuarti (also known as Larry Laurence and Larry Stuart) was an Italian-American singer and musical theater star. He made over thirty recordings through a forty+ year career and appeared in numerous television variety shows as well as in a series of commercials for Ragu pasta sauce. This is a wonderful book in the astronauts' own words, published just after Scott Carpenter's voyage on Aurora 7 in 1962. This copy was signed in 1963 based on a NASA MSC form included. A very desirable and historical signed volume. Hardbound, no dust jacket, octavo, 352 pages, illustrated. A fine copy.
Also included is a 10" x 8" color photo of the Mercury Seven astronauts signed in an unknown hand: "To Enzo who with one high note goes into orbit without a ship. The astronauts '7'". Very good.

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.
