    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.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
