Description:
New York: Farrar , Straus and Giroux, 1974. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/fine. Octavo, 478pp., plus Appendix. Stated first printing. A very good copy in the publisher's blue cloth, with some foxing to the top edge; clean and crisp internally. In a fine dust jacket. This copy SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Collins on the front free endpaper: "To Fred; All the best from Michael Collins." Collins, who began his astronaut career as one of "the Fourteen," the third group of NASA astronauts, is best known for his work on Apollo 11, when he manned the orbiting spacecraft alone as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon. Signed copies are scarce, but signed first printings are genuinely rare, as the book was quickly reprinted within months of publication. An appealing copy of a significant memoir.
