Octavo, about 8.25 inches tall, in blue cloth. 249 pages illustrated by photographs, some in color including the frontispiece.

The highest jump, almost 20 miles high, remained a world record until fairly recently. Ex-library copy, but well preserved. The covers show shadows from tape that had held the jacket to the book. Text block edges are all lightly stamped with the library's name. Front endpaper has a pocket and the remains of a "date due" sheet. Withdrawal stamp on the half title. Otherwise just mild toning and very light edge wear. The jacket is bright and complete and without tears, but there is a library number tag on the spine. Absent the library marks, this is an about near fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 20089
