    Apollo Era: NASA and Related Original Publications Collection. Approximately thirty-five vintage (1962-1972) brochures, prints, newsletters, pamphlets, and books. A nice grouping that includes several key issues of Spaceport News, an internal slick-paper newspaper published at the Kennedy Space Center. Included are: July 3, 1969 ("Countdown Looms For Launch Of Historic Apollo 11 Mission"); July 23, 1969 ("U.S. Lands Men on Moon"); July 31, 1969 ("Astronauts in Quarantine, Samples Studied"); November 6, 1969 ("Apollo 12 Countdown Picks Up Saturday Leading to Liftoff for Moon November 14"); and April 9, 1970 ("Apollo 13 Countdown Aims for Saturday Liftoff of Third Moon Landing Mission"). Another group of items that caught this cataloger's eye was a group of fourteen humorous 10" x 13" B&W posters from the Endevco Corporation, dated 1962-63. They each picture an animal with a funny space program-related caption. Overall fine condition or better. From the estate of NASA engineer Richard C. Proffitt, Launch Complex 39 Operations Manager from 1969 to 1976.
