The Book, Ephemera and Curio Auction, offered by Cordier Auctions, includes NASA photographs, rare books, advertising, postcards, and political ephemera. The featured NASA photographs are from the estate of Charles “Rex” Anderson of Kodak Research Laboratory. They include stills from the Apollo & Gemini missions, each marked with NASA serial numbers. Highlights of the group are from the Apollo X mission (with negatives) and an image of the first moon landing and placement of the American flag. Other historical photos at auction include portraits of George A. Custer and Buffalo Bill.
Beyond photography, two hymnals from the Ephrata Cloister of 1754, a 1782 German Bible, and a signed edition of The Mutt by A.W. Tillinghast will cross the auction block. The auction particularly focuses on early and first-edition books.
