Description


Lunar orbit flown 'three-plate' CSM Lunar Landmark map carried aboard the Apollo 17 command module America. Printed on October 31, 1972, the map measures 10.5 x 22.75 unfolded and is labeled in the lower right, "17-1, December 6, 1972," with bottom tab reading: "17-1, 1:630K." The 1:630,000 scale map displays an extended view of the lunar surface as it leads up to the Apollo 17 landing site at Taurus-Littrow, showing various lunar craters and rilles, the primary (17-1) landing site, and the vertical line “13” indicating orbit number. Lower left bears an affixed Eugene A. Cernan Space Collection provenance label, signed in black felt tip by Cernan, and reading, in part: "The crew used this oversized flown Apollo 17 CSM Lunar Landmark Map to study the Moon's terrain from lunar orbit." In fine condition, with mild toning to one panel from original adhesive on reverse. Accompanied by an attractive color satin-finish photo of Cernan holding the map.
