Description


Souvenir handwritten autobiographical statement entitled “Testimony of a Fortunate Man,” one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, no date. In part: “The Mercury space craft, doing things never before possible, gave me, from the altitude of near earth orbit, some of the most exquisite unusual experiences of my life. One was a view of the spent and tumbling Atlas booster, shortly after launch, seen against the background of the Sahara, with its tiny cumulus clouds and their tiny shadows. ” In fine condition. Accompanied by a satin-finish 10 x 8 photo of Carpenter peering into the capsule, signed and inscribed in silver ink, “To Roy—all best, Scott Carpenter.” Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
