GEOLOGY OF THE APOLLO 14 LANDING SITE IN THE FRA MAURO HIGHLANDS; PROFESSIONAL PAPER 880

Washington, DC: United States Geological Survey/USGS/Government Printing Office/GPO, 1977. Softcover. Item #49171

The Apollo 14 Lunar Module landed on the lunar surface on February 5, 1971. The landing site was selected in order to study the Fra Mauro Formation which covers large areas of the near side of the moon. This formation forms a broad belt surrounding Mare Imbrium and is believed to be material that was excavated by a large impact that formed the Imbrium basin. 103 pages with photographs of rocks and their location on the moon, descriptions, tables, illustrations, and references, plus the seven folded plates in the rear pocket. Bound in original thick gray paper printed in black. A very good copy.
