Map of first lunar landing site signed by Apollo 11 navigator up for sale at £7500
Map of the First Lunar Landing Site, Apollo XI, July 20th 1969. Signed by Buzz Aldrin, 2nd man to walk on the moon and navigator of the Eagle lunar module. Asking price: £7500.

LONDON.- Although Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the Moon, it is Buzz Aldrin, his fellow astronaut and navigator, who can be seen in the majority of the lunar surface photographs from that historic Apollo 11 mission.

The reason? Armstrong spent most of his time behind the camera.

Armstrong died in 2012 at the age of 82, leaving Michael Collins – the third member of the crew who remained in the command module while the other two headed for the surface of the Moon – and Aldrin as the two survivors, now aged 88 and 89 respectively.

As the 50th anniversary of the first Moonwalk approaches on July 20, this map of the lunar landing site, signed and inscribed by Aldrin, will appear for sale with the Map House at the London Map Fair at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington Gore London. The fair runs on June 8 and 9 and the asking price for the map is £7500.

With prices from £10 to £100,000, The London Map Fair hosts more than 40 exhibitors from the USA and Europe who will offer a wide range of cartographic ephemera, from the rarest of early antique maps charting the New World, via pictorial maps of cities to works like this one.

Collectors have even more reason to be in London that weekend as, for the first time in years, the London Map Fair and the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association’s (PBFA) London Antiquarian Book Fair (June 6-7, ILEC Conference Centre, Earls Court Hotel, SW6) AND the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association’s Firsts – London’s Rare Book Fair (June 7-9, Battersea Evolution) will all be on.
