        Business Adventures / Twelve classic tales from the worlds of Wall Street and the modern American corporation

      Weybright and Talley, New York 1969 - Although this copy is entirely bound in black cloth with apple green endpapers (just like the similarly sized trade editions) and states "Third printing, February, 1969" to copyright page, the absence of any price from the (unclipped) jacket front flap, and the presence of a small, square deboss to bottom of rear board at spine, tell us this is in fact a book-club edition. Author Brooks, who wrote regularly for the New Yorker (where all of these pieces first appeared, albeit "in different form"), here gives us 50 pp. on the fate of the Ford Edsel (presumably condensed from his earlier, 1963 book of that title), with additional chapters on the rise of Xerox; on David Lilienthal; on the price-rigging of industrial transformers and generators by Westinghouse, GE, and others (as revealed to the public by Sen. Estes Kefauver); on the weird social and economic distortions caused by the intricacies of the federal income tax, etc. Business. 399 pp. including index. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Neil Armstrong Signed Apollo 11 Liftoff.

      - Image of the Saturn V rocket during the Apollo 11 during liftoff. Boldly signed on the image, "Neil Armstrong Apollo 11." In fine condition. The image measures 6 inches by 4 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 12 inches by 13 inches. Rare and desirable signed by Neil Armstrong. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent just under a day on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit. Apollo 11 was launched by a Saturn V rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Merritt Island, Florida, on July 16 at 9:32 am EDT (13:32 UTC) and was the fifth manned mission of NASA's Apollo program. The Apollo spacecraft had three parts: a command module (CM) with a cabin for the three astronauts, and the only part that landed back on Earth; a service module (SM), which supported the command module with propulsion, electrical power, oxygen, and water; and a lunar module (LM) that had two stages - a lower stage for landing on the Moon, and an upper stage to place the astronauts back into lunar orbit. After being sent toward the Moon by the Saturn V's upper stage, the astronauts separated the spacecraft from it and traveled for three days until they entered into lunar orbit. Armstrong and Aldrin then moved into the lunar module Eagle and landed in the Sea of Tranquility. They stayed a total of about 21.5 hours on the lunar surface. The astronauts used Eagle's upper stage to lift off from the lunar surface and rejoin Collins in the command module. They jettisoned Eagle before they performed the maneuvers that blasted them out of lunar orbit on a trajectory back to Earth. They returned to Earth and landed in the Pacific Ocean on July 24. The landing was broadcast on live TV to a worldwide audience. Armstrong stepped onto the lunar surface and described the event as "one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." Apollo 11 effectively ended the Space Race and fulfilled a national goal proposed in 1961 by U.S. President John F. Kennedy: "before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Photograph of Buzz Aldrin standing on the moon with the American flag and the lunar module, signed by all three crew members: Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins

      Color photograph (11 x 14 in.), original printed mount. Signatures lightly faded, some age-toning to mat, the photograph in fine condition. A CLASSIC SPACE PHOTOGRAPH, signed by the crew of Apollo 11, the first manned mission to the Moon: Neil Armstrong (commander), Buzz Aldrin (lunar module pilot), and Michael Collins (command module pilot). This photograph was prepared for presentation to the governor of each of the fifty states in conjunction with the tour of the Apollo 11 spacecraft and a lunar rock sample to be displayed in the state capital. This example does not bear the recipient's name and was evidently a spare prepared in case of loss or damage. The examples presented to the governors are presumably in state archival collections. This is a very scarce large-format print of one of the most famous photographs in the history of space exploration, taken by Neil Armstrong on July 21, 1969.

        Photograph of a television screen, split, one side with Nixon on the phone and the other with Armstrong and Aldrin on moon

      , 1969 THE MOST FAMOUS TELEPHONE CALL IN HISTORY. Gelatin silver print photograph. Approx 7 x 8 1/2 in, black and white. Signed by Nixon, Collins, Aldrin (adding "We came in peace for all mankind Apollo 11") and Armstrong ("To Claude Harkins with best wishes Neil Armstrong"). Soon after stepping onto the moon, Armstrong and Aldrin spoke with President Nixon by telephone in what Nixon called "the most historic phone call ever made from the White House." In his diary Nixon wrote, "The President held an interplanetary conversation with Apollo 11 Astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin on the Moon." The split television screen image was broadcast by the television networks. Nixon's chief of staff H. R. Haldeman noted that the president was elated by the moon landing, "clapped and shouted 'Hooray'" when Armstrong stepped on the moon's surface, and wrote his own remarks for the event. The following day Nixon reinstated his ban on the New York Times, "mainly due to Moon TV editorial which was uncalled for. The editorial berated the president for sharing the stage with the astronauts and wasting their precious time with his direct link conversation" (Haldeman Diaries).
