    Description

    Apollo 10 Training-Used Earth Landmark Maps & Photos (Training) 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 approximately seventy-one pages of color Earth terrain photos followed by 200+ color Earth Landmark maps, all on lightweight three hole-punched paper, each with a plastic-coated tab; all are bound with three binder rings between cardstock covers. The cover lists no part or serial number. Young has signed on the front cover: "From My Personal Collection/ 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 various 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 book is essentially identical to the previous lot except that this one did not fly on the mission. Extremely fine condition with just some light soiling on the covers.

    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.
