Apollo 11 takeoff... Neil Armstrong...

Item # 689748

July 17, 1969

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 17, 1969

* Apollo 11 Moon spaceflight takeoff
* Neil Armstrong - Buzz Aldrin - Michael Collins

The front page has a nice banner headline: "ASTRONAUTS SPEEDING TOWARD THE MOON; FIRST DAY OF APOLLO FLIGHT IS FLAWLESS; NIXON ASKS FOR NATIONAL HOLIDAY MONDAY" with subheads and two nice photos, one showing the astronauts heading towards the spacecraft and the other showing takeoff. Nice for display. Much more inside, loads of text. First report coverage at the beginning of the historic flight of Apollo 11 which put the very first humans on the Moon.  Most issues that were saved was the actual Moon landing making this issue more uncommon. Nice to have in this famous NYC title.
Complete 1st section only with all 28 pages, light creasing at the folds, nice condition.
