1960 First Edition One of the earliest, rarest, and most displayable of such maps, considered a landmark in the history of moon mapping. This example is the first edition, dated July 1960, a more common second edition was dated 1961 and published .

Printed by Army Map Service, Corps of Engineers.

Made in preparation for the Apollo moon landings, this was originally prepared by the scientists Robert J. Hackman and Arnold C. Mason in 1960 based on photographs taken at Lick Observatory, San Jose, California.
This monumental map details the physical geography of the moon, noting craters, seas, mountains, and other formations with special attention to 'lunar rays.'
Lunar rays are the steaks of fine ejecta, appearing almost like the spokes of a wheel, surrounding many of the moon's largest impact craters. The work done in compiling this map led Hackman to develop the basis for all future planetary mapping.
Very rare.
