About this Item

7.25" x 4.5". 106pp., plus 2pp ads. Blue cloth. Mild fading to spine, bookplate, small erasure to first blank, else a nice near fine copy. We believe that this rare volume is the first British nonfiction book about space travel, and only the second nonfiction book on space travel published in English. (Excluding Goddard's very rare first pamphlet.) See Ciancone "The Literary Legacy of the Space Age" #183. Bookseller Inventory # 1945
