    Description

    Mercury 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.
