Betty Grissom is the widow of Gus Grissom, who was scheduled to be the first man on the moon, and instead became a victim of a flash fire in the Apollo Command module. It is exceedingly rare to find the signature of all three members of the Grissom family. "In this compelling personal account, Betty Grissom and Henry Still chart the progress of the space program from a unique vantage point and take it from its first faltering steps to the successful Apollo moonshots, as seen through the eyes of those most intimately involved with it. Running parallel to this is Betty's progression from a small-town Indiana girl who married her high-school sweetheart to the plaintiff in a ten million damage suit against North American Rockwell , builders of the Apollo Spacecraft."; Signed by Author .

In my estimation, this is one of the innovative, inspiring and influential press's loveliest productions. As Veatchs Arts of the Book (much more careful and watchful readers than me) have pointed out, early editions of this title (of which this is one) end the humorous colophon with "besides being a good gynecologist he is a word freak." Copies printed later in the edition changed that wording to "being a good gynecologist, he has a good eye for details.". Signed by the Author. Cloth with a Cloth Slipcase. Fine Condition.

Two volumes plus seperate suite of plates. 1 of 130 Roman-numbered sets. Mostly engraved on wood by Morris. Introduction by J.R. Duffy. Full dark blue morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe with leather spine labels and top edges in gilt. Printed on untrimmed J. Barcham Green thick wove paper, Volume I with text by Duffy and 26 plates of collotype reproductions of drawings and preliminary prints by Morris and Burne-Jones, Volume II with illustrated text printed in Kelmscott Troy types cast from the original matrices with separate suite of collotype prints and a set of proofs of the 44 wood engravings. Housed in two matching morocco-backed board slipcases lined with black and white Morris-patterned paper. Near fine set marred only by a few splash spot stains at bulked fore-edge of Volume I, two copies of original prospectus laid in. The entire edition included 130 Roman-numbered copies, as in this lot; 270 copies in cloth and boards; and 100 portfolios of proofs of the wood-engravings. This edition was the first publication of the drawings by Burne-Jones and the wood-engravings by Morris, a project on which they collaborated in the late 1860's but never carried through. The original wood blocks remained in the Morris family until bequeathed to the Society of Antiquaries in London in 1938, where they were forgotten until the late 1960's. PRERAPH/041409.
