In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, in part: "The accompanying two-sided aeronautical chart page…comes from the flown Gemini V aeronautical chart book…consigned to Odyssey Auctions by Gemini V Pilot Charles 'Pete' Conrad for offer in their 27 Feb. 1994 auction…According to Conrad, this collection of landmark reference charts was prepared, at his request, as an informal aid for ground tracking during the mission. In Conrad's words, 'we used it to help us figure out where we were in the world as we discussed the visual acuity experiments.'"
