Most impressive are a set of four pull-out "Apollo Mission 8, Lunar Photography Index" charts bound into the manual, which each measuring 58 x 10.5 unfolded. The name "E. L. Michel," who worked in NASA's medical offices, is stamped in the upper right corner of the cover. In fine condition. From The Bill Lende Collection.
