SIGNED "FIRST FLIGHT TO THE MOON/ JAMES LOVELL/APOLLO 8." The Apollo 8 Saturn V Flight Manual was the authoritative reference for the Saturn V rocket. Early versions of this document (SA-503) are rarely offered for the historic, first manned flight to the moon. Divided into ten sections, it included information on emergency procedures, mission control monitoring, and ground support interface, as well as details on the three stages of the rocket, amongst other topics.
