    Description

    Soviet Vintage Vladimir Komarov Large Photo Presentation Book. A 15.5" x 11.25" spiral-bound book containing forty-four B&W photos tracing the career and personal life of Komarov. He commanded Voskhod 1 in October 1964, the first manned spaceflight to carry more than one crewman (three, actually) and the first without the use of spacesuits (there wasn't room in the two-man craft). He later became the first cosmonaut to fly into space twice, on Soyuz 1. That ended tragically when he died during a crash landing due to a faulty parachute making him the first human to die in a space flight. An interesting and rare book. Very good.
