I have a copy of Sons of the Blue Planet (in english) which was published in 1973.

I understand there is a later printing which includes an example of the signature of each cosmonaut listed in the book.

Can anyone help with a spare copy or even details of when it was printed?

Thanks folks. Regards, Ian from Oz

Hi Ian,

Many years ago in the mid-70s I was given a white foldover card measuring about 8x10 by a Soviet bookshop proprietor. He told me it had probably come from a book he had sold, and said I could have it for nothing if I wanted it. It has around twenty B&W thumbnail photos of all the early cosmonaut, and when you open it up all their signatures are inside. Would this be the one you mean? If so, let me know and you can have it. I honestly don't know if it's from that book or not.

Thanks for the information Rex.

Do you know of one for sale? I can't find one for sale on the net at the moment. Quite a few copies of the 1973 edition but none of the later version.

Thanks again.
