    Description

    More than 250 maps and photos, all flown to the moon on Apollo 10.

    Apollo 10 Flown Earth Landmark Maps & Photos Book Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot John Young, Signed and Certified. This 8.5" x 10.5" (x 1"+ thick) book consists of seventy-one pages of color Earth terrain photos followed by 207 color Earth Landmark maps, all on lightweight three hole-punched paper and each with a plastic-coated tab; all are bound with three binder rings between two cardstock covers. The front cover has a Beta cloth Apollo 10 mission insignia laid down to it and lists the part number as "SKB32100079-320" and the serial number as "1001". Young has signed on the front cover: "Flown on Apollo 10/ John W. Young". The photos are notated as to landmark and North compass point and all have various NASA photo numbers signifying that they were taken on a variety of flights during 1965 and 1966; each has a chart printed beneath giving latitude, longitude, elevation, and horizontal uncertainty calculations for each identified location. The NASA Apollo Earth Landmark Maps, printed by the Army Map Service, are all on a scale of 1:1,000,000 and feature similar notations and calculations. This is certainly one of the largest complete books flown to the moon that we've offered; rarely found thus. Extremely fine condition with just some light soiling on the covers. A singular opportunity.

    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.
