    NASA Publications from John Glenn's Presentation at the May 1962 Space Science Symposium: "Summary Results of the First United States Manned Orbital Flight" and "Results of the First..." from the Archives of Soviet General Nikolai Kamanin. As follows. (1) An 8" x 10.5" staple bound presentation given by Glenn at the Symposium, twenty-seven single-sided pages followed by twenty-nine pages of illustrations. Quite rare. (2) A 7.75" x 10.25" softbound NASA publication of 204 pages, the full report on Friendship 7. (3) Also, found inside the latter book are eleven 3.5" x 4.75" B&W photos of Mercury astronauts and one 7" x 9.5" of the whole group. These items were gathered by Kamanin on May 3, 1962, when he and Gherman Titov met Glenn during their tour of the United States. Fine overall.
