About this Item: Washington, The Smithsonian Institution, 1936. 8vo. In recent red full cloth with gilt lettering to front board. Published as part of "Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, Volume 95, Number 3, Publication 3381". A fine and clean copy. (2), 10 pp. + 11 photographic plates. First edition of Goddard's paper on liquid-fueled rocket development. Goddard is credited with creating and building the world's first liquid-fueled rocket and is often referred to as the man who ushered in the Space Age (Pendray, Rocket Development). By temperament and training Goddard was not a team worker, yet he laid the foundation from which team workers could launch men to the moon" (DSB). Goddard was secretive about his research and only published two papers; "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919) and the present. Goddard launched the first liquid-fuel rocket on 16 March 1926 near Auburn, Mass. The ten-foot rocket, nicknamed "Nell" reached an altitude of 41 feet, traveled a distance of 184 feet and landed 2.5 seconds after lift-off in a cabbage patch. "Although his list of firsts in rocketry was distuguished, Goddard was eventually surpassed by teams of rocket research and development experts elsewhere, particularly in Germany." (DSB)."Like the Russian hero Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and the German pioneer Hermann Oberth, Goddard worked out the theory of rocket propulsion independently [.] Having explored the mathematical practicality of rocketry since 1906 and the experimental workability of reaction engines in laboratory vacuum tests since 1912, Goddard began to accumulate ideas for probing beyond the Earth's stratosphere. His first two patents in 1914, for a liquid-fuel gun rocket and a multistage step rocket, let to some modest recognition and financial support from the Smithsonian Institution [.] With an eye toward patentability of demonstrated systems and with the aid of no more than a handful of technicians, Goddard achieved a series of workable liquid-fuel flights starting in 1926. Through the patronage of Charles A. Lindbergh, the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation, and the Carnegie and Smithsonian institutions, the Goddards and their small staff were able to move near Roswell, New Mexico. There, during most of the 1930s, Goddard demonstrated, despite many failures in his systematic static and flight tests, progressively more sophisticated experimental boosters and payloads, reaching speeds of 700 miles per hour and altitudes above 8000 feet in several test flights" (DSB).

Octavo, modern full burgundy cloth gilt. $3200.First separate edition of Goddard’s research on rocket fuel, containing "the first public mention of his historic 1926 liquid-fueled rocket launch" (Ciancone 85), with 11 pages of black-and-white photographs.On March 16, 1926, Goddard "flew the world's first liquid propellant rocket from a site near Auburn, Massachusetts. The ten-foot rocket, with the engine mounted on the nose, reached an altitude of 41 feet, traveled 184 feet over the ground, and landed 2.5 seconds after lift-off Fearful that his ideas would be stolen by unscrupulous rivals, Goddard refused to share the details of his technology with other experimenters. His most significant publication after 1919, Liquid Propellant Rocket Development, which appeared in a March 1936 issue of the Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, contained so little specific information that it was of limited value to other rocket experimenters" (ANB). Nevertheless, "Goddard became posthumously world-famous as one of three scientific pioneers of rocketry He laid the foundation from which team workers could launch men to the moon" (DSB V:433).

About this Item: Smithsonian, Washington DC, 1936. Goddard, Robert H. (1882-1945). Liquid-propellant rocket development. 10pp. 6 plate leaves. Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution, 1936. 246 x 163 mm. Original printed wrappers; preserved in a cloth drop-back box. Fine copy. From the library of aviation and aerospace pioneer Theodore von Kármán (1881-1963), with his stamp and docketing on the front wrapper. Front wrapper inscribed "Nat'l Research Council," with stamp beneath reading "Division of Chemistry and Chemical Technology." First Edition. "Like the Russian hero Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and the German pioneer Hermann Oberth, Goddard worked out the theory of rocket propulsion independently . . . Having explored the mathematical practicality of rocketry since 1906 and the experimental workability of reaction engines in laboratory vacuum tests since 1912, Goddard began to accumulate ideas for probing beyond the Earth's stratosphere. His first two patents in 1914, for a liquid-fuel gun rocket and a multistage step rocket, let to some modest recognition and financial support from the Smithsonian Institution . . . With an eye toward patentability of demonstrated systems and with the aid of no more than a handful of technicians, Goddard achieved a series of workable liquid-fuel flights starting in 1926. Through the patronage of Charles A. Lindbergh, the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation, and the Carnegie and Smithsonian institutions, the Goddards and their small staff were able to move near Roswell, New Mexico. There, during most of the 1930s, Goddard demonstrated, despite many failures in his systematic static and flight tests, progressively more sophisticated experimental boosters and payloads, reaching speeds of 700 miles per hour and altitudes above 8000 feet in several test flights" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The secretive Goddard published only two papers on rocketry, "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919) and the present work. The remainder of his work was documented in patents. This copy is from the library of aeronautics pioneer Theodore von Kármán, who in addition to directing the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech was also the founder of the Aerojet Engineering Corporation, one of the industrial giants of the jet age. "At Caltech, Karman and his students laid the foundations for aerodynamic design leading to supersonic flight" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Seller Inventory # 43705
