Lovell, Jim and Jeffrey Kluger. Apollo 13. Boston, New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 2000. Original dust jacket and original black hardcover 1/4 cloth boards with silver embossed titles to spine. With signed Jim Lovell Apollo 13 sticker on free end page. Illustrated with black and white photographs.
This is the commemorative 30-year anniversary edition of Apollo 13 by Jim Lovell. Lovell wrote the book in conjunction with Jeffery Kluger. It was published by Houghton Mifflin Company in 2000. The book was previously published as Lost Moon. This commemorative edition features the signature of Lovell on a sticker, applied to the front free end paper.
This is both Jim Lovell’s autobiography and a detailed chronicle of the Apollo 13 mission, which held “the world in the grip of suspense… a drama of epic dimensions worthy of a Homer” (New York Times). Lost Moon became the basis for the 1995 Oscar-winning film, "Apollo 13," starring Tom Hanks as Lovell. Subsequent later book editions, like the one offered here, were re-titled Apollo 13 to reflect this.
Best known as the commander of the Apollo 13 mission, Jim Lovell was considered a hero of space exploration for years prior to his final Apollo flight. In addition to his flights on the Gemini 7 and Gemini 12 missions, Lovell served in 1968 as Command Module Pilot and Navigator on Apollo 8, the first manned voyage to the Moon.
