Signed on the title page of each volume in ink by a variety of Apollo astronauts, many of whom add their mission. Volume I, 'One Giant Leap,' is signed and inscribed by the author, "To Andy McCulley, with best wishes, Andrew Chaikin," and eight astronauts, "Tom Stafford, Apollo 10," "Buzz Aldrin, Apollo XI LMP," "Alan Bean," "Richard Gordon," "Edgar Mitchell," "Dave Scott," "Al Worden, Apollo 15," and "Charlie Duke, Apollo 16."

Schmitt, Apollo 17 LMP," plus the legendary flight controller, "Eugene Kranz, 'White' Flight." In overall fine condition. Accompanied by eleven certificates of authenticity from private signings with various astronauts, many conducted by Novaspace; the consignor notes that those not accompanied by a certificate were obtained in person at the UACC show in San Antonio in 2006, or at a subsequent Spacefest. A decidedly unique, incredible assemblage of the men who made America's space program a resounding success.
