I have a book "The Rockets Red Glare" written by Wernher von Braun and Frederick I. Ordway III. In 1976 Frederick gave this book as a gift to Walter Haeussermann. Walter was another famous German rocket scientist who worked closely with von Braun.

Frederick wrote an inscription inside that reads:

To Walter and Ruth Haeussermann, Let's Keep Those Rockets Flying, With Warmest Wishes, Frederick I. Ordway III
So it's not just an autograph, it's a piece of history.

The book is in like new condition, and the inscription is very neat and legible. Feel free to contact me for scans and more info.

I received this book from Walter himself. My mother was his care taker the last 10 years of his life.
