Signed book: From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne. Eleventh edition. London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company. Hardcover, 5.25 x 7.25, 323 pages. Signed on neatly tipped-in endpapers in black felt tip by six Apollo astronauts, "Walt Cunningham, Apollo 7 LMP," "Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP," "Michael Collins, Apollo XI CMP," "Al Worden, Apollo 15 CMP," "Dave Scott, Apollo 9 CMP, Apollo 15 CDR," and "Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 LMP." Autographic condition fine. Book: VG+/None, with bumps to spine ends and mild edgewear. Interestingly, there were several similarities between Verne’s novel and the eventuality of the Apollo program, including: the US being the first to launch a manned spacecraft to circumnavigate the moon; the rejection of Brownsville, Texas as a launch site, and the subsequent choosing of Florida; Apollo 8 being launched in the month of December and splash down and recovery in the Pacific; and the crews being made up of three members. A seldom-seen and highly desirable format connecting science fiction dreams to space age realities.
