    Nikkormat FT2 Single Lens Reflex Camera, Serial #5172071, in Outfit with Lenses, Flashes, and Case. Patnesky always had multiple cameras around his neck. One was a Leica, the others were usually Nikon products. Here is a mid-1970s black finish Nikkormat FT2 SLR body with a Nikkor 105mm f2.5 short telephoto lens. Two other lenses included- a 55mm f3.5 Micro- Nikkor (w/ instruction booklet), and a Sigma-Z 28mm, f2.8 wide angle (w/ instructions). Three flashes also included- a Nikon Speedlight SB-17, a Vivitar 285HV Zoom Thyristor (w/ instructions), and a Minolta Electroflash P. A 15" remote shutter release and a nice large Marsand case round out the kit. Nothing tested, condition appears excellent. From the personal collection of longtime NASA photojournalist Andrew "Pat" Patnesky.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
