Description

Gene Cernan

Very limited edition color 13.5 x 12 manuscript print entitled “The Last Words Ever Spoken,” numbered 25/45, bearing an image of Cernan on the lunar surface and a printed quotation of his last words spoken on the moon, signed in black felt tip underneath the image, with Cernan writing out the final words ever spoken by man on the moon: “And as we leave the Moon at ‘Taurus—Littrow,’ we leave as we came…and God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind,” and signed underneath, “Gene Cernan.” Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 24.5 x 23. In fine condition. In the years since leaving the moon, Cernan has rarely inscribed this quote in full; this copy is one of only 45 examples that were created, and one of only 36 authorized for sale to collectors by Cernan. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
