Rare set of eight first-generation color glossy NASA photos (six red-numbered), 8 x 10 and 10 x 8, depicting Pilot Ed White during his historic Gemini 4 spacewalk, the first achieved by an American astronaut. Each photo shows a different image of White using the Hand-Held Maneuvering Unit to float around the spacecraft, the majority of the photos offering stunning background images of planet Earth; one of the photos is a close-up of the Gemini 4 capsule. Reverse of each photo bears "A Kodak Paper" watermarks, with all but two featuring purple NASA caption text. In overall fine condition, with a few surface marks and corner creases. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
