Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $300.00 +
Sold Price: $584.33 (includes buyer's premium)


Two rare official NASA reports: one volume entitled “Lunar Sample Information Catalog, Apollo 11,” produced by the Lunar Receiving Laboratory, 8 x 10.5, 412 pages, August 31, 1969; and a volume entitled “Mineralogy and Petrology of the Apollo 11 Lunar Sample,” produced by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Special Report 307, 8.5 x 11, 99 pages, January 9, 1970. The rarer Lunar Sample Information Catalog includes twelve glossy photographs held within an envelope at the rear. In overall fine condition, with some toning to cover borders. Published just 38 days after the Apollo 11 splashdown, the Lunar Sample Information Catalog was produced as a ‘rush order’ to showcase the tangible results of the first manned mission to the moon. Both of the reports offered here are extremely scarce. Please call for a shipping quote.
