Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $7,352.45 (includes buyer's premium)


Signed book: From the Earth to the Moon. First American hardcover edition. NY: Scribner, Armstrong & Company, 1874. Brown cloth hardcover, 6 x 8, 323 pages and 80 full-page illustrations. Stunningly signed on the free end pages in crisp and bold black felt tip by eleven Apollo astronauts, including six moonwalkers—one from each mission that landed on the lunar surface—and three mission commanders: Walt Cunningham (Apollo 7 LMP), Dave Scott (Apollo 15 CDR), Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11 LMP), Alan Bean (Apollo 12 LMP), James McDivitt (Apollo 9 CDR), Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 LMP), Al Worden (Apollo 15 CMP), Richard Gordon (Apollo 12 CMP), Fred Haise (Apollo 13 LMP), Charlie Duke (Apollo 16 LMP), and Gene Cernan (Apollo 17 CDR). Autographic condition: very good to fine. Book condition: G+/None, with new pastedowns and archival tape along hinge at title page. Interestingly, there were several similarities between Verne’s novel and the eventuality of the Apollo program, including: the US being the first to launch a manned spacecraft to circumnavigate the moon; the rejection of Brownsville, Texas as a launch site, and the subsequent choosing of Florida; Apollo 8 being launched in the month of December and splash down and recovery in the Pacific; and the crews being made up of three members. A seldom—if ever—seen format connecting science fiction dreams to space age realities. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
