Description


Annotated book: Countdown by Frank Borman. First edition, first printing. NY: Silver Arrow Books, 1988. Hardcover with dust jacket, 6.5 x 9.5, 448 pages. Conrad's personal bookplate has been applied to the first free end page, and the book is filled with his highlighting and annotations in the margins. Many words, sentences, and passages have been highlighted, with Conrad frequently writing a word or two in black ballpoint; various other sections have been underlined or circled by Conrad. For instance, he echoes Borman's words on page 293, writing "fear & celebrity" in the upper margin—something that must have resonated with him. In fine condition, with light wear to the dust jacket. It is fascinating to peruse this volume and read it as Conrad would have, taking in what caught his interest—an astronaut reading the autobiography of a fellow astronaut.
