Houghton Library's new exhibition takes us to the moon
Summer 2019

A landmark anniversary calls for a landmark celebration. The Houghton Library at Harvard University delivers in grand fashion with Small Steps, Giant Leaps: Apollo 11 at Fifty, an exhibition that focuses on the first moon landing. The semi-chronological exhibit features sixty items: twenty-three from the library, and thirty-seven loaned by a collector of space memorabilia who wishes to remain anonymous.

As we countdown to the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing this July, several libraries and museums are setting their sights on lunar topics.

Coming up this week at Bloomsbury Auctions in London is an incredible collection of vintage NASA photographs. Telephoto panoramic mosaics, crew portraits, and all manor of lunar views comprise this stunning set of 692 images, dating from 1945 to 1972. Some are what we have come to see as iconic space images, while others were virtually unpublished and accessible only to researchers in the archives of the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, where most of this collection is sourced, according to the sale catalogue.
