Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,037.58 (includes buyer's premium)


Desirable Saturn V revised flight manual SA 503, approximately 230 pages, 8.25 x 10.75, dated November 1, 1968. Signed and inscribed on the front cover in black felt tip by the crew of Apollo 8: “To Howard Lloyd, with appreciate for a final manual, Frank Borman &,” “James Lovell,” and “Bill Anders.” Replacing the April 1st publication of “MSFC–MAN–503,” this manual consists of ten sections: General Description, Performance, Emergency Detection and Procedures, S–1C Stage, S–II Stage, S–IVB Stage, Instrument Unit, Ground Support Interface, Mission Control Monitoring, and Mission Variables and Constraints. The foreword, in part: “This manual was prepared to provide the astronaut with a single source reference as to the characteristics and functions of the SA–503 launch vehicle and the AS–503 manned flight mission.” In fine condition. Accompanied by an identical unsigned copy of the manual, and issue Vol. 9 of the Marshall Star newsletter, dated March 5, 1969, showing an image of engineer Howard Lloyd accepting a signed copy of the Saturn V 503 vehicle manual from deputy Saturn program manager Ray Godfrey. Lloyd worked in the System Engineering Management Office, and helped compile flight manuals for the Apollo 7 and 8 missions. Likely the very copy seen in the newsletter, this is an exceptional signed manual gifted by mission astronauts to one of the men responsible for collating two of the earliest Apollo program reference books. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
