Description

Wolfe thanks Worden in The Right Stuff: "I still haven't reached the Moon. (And to think it only took NASA a decade!)"

Al Worden's personally-owned signed book: The Right Stuff. First edition. NY: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1979. Hardcover with dust jacket, 6 x 8.5, 436 pages. Lengthily signed and inscribed on the half-title page in ink, "Dear Al, As you'll see, I still haven't reached the Moon. (And to think it only took NASA a decade!) But I've had a great time getting this far, with one of the most delightful dividends of the trip being the chance to get to know you. I'll never be able to repay you for your generosity, but I offer you this volume as a token. Yours, Tom Wolfe, August 31, 1979." In very good to fine condition, with a few tears and creases to the dust jacket.

From the collection of Apollo 15 CMP Al Worden, and accompanied by a letter of provenance from his daughter Alison (Worden) Penczak.
