About this Item: The Viking Press, New York, 1958. Hardcover. Condition: Good. xvi, 528 pages. Illustrations. Appendices. Footnotes. Figures. Notes and Tables. Bibliography. Index. Name in ink stamped inside front board. Front board has some weakness, restrengthened with glue. Cover has some wear and soiling. Willy Otto Oskar Ley (October 2, 1906 - June 24, 1969) was a German-American science writer, spaceflight advocate, and historian of science who helped to popularize rocketry, spaceflight, and natural history in both Germany and the United States. The crater Ley on the far side of the Moon is named in his honor. In January 1935, Ley fled Germany for Great Britain and ultimately the United States. His book, Rockets, Missiles, and Space Travel was cited in the Space Handbook: Astronautics and its Applications, a staff report of the Select Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration of the U.S. House of Representatives, which provided non-technical information about spaceflight to U.S. policy makers. Willy Ley's Rockets first appeared in 1944, was greatly enlarged twice under new titles--Rockets and Space travel in 1947 and the present work in 1951--and went through intermediate minor revisions and expansions, all on account of rapid developments in rocketry in the postwar period. This printing adds Sputnik data to the Revised Edition. Ley traces the development of rockets from early fireworks and war rockets, through the 20th century experiments such as those of Robert Goddard and Hermann Oberth, and into the era of modern rocketry beginning with the German V-2 during the Second World War and continuing through to the American and Russian satellite programs. Book Club Edition of Revised and Enlarged Edition [stated]. Fifth Printing [stated]. Seller Inventory # 75252

About this Item: The Viking Press, New York, 1957. Hardcover with dust jacket. Condition: good condition. Revised and Enlarged Edition from 1957. - - This definitive source book in its field has already had eleven printings, and two complete revisions, since it was first published in 1944. Now it has again been brought up to date, with much newly released information, and more and more accomplished facts replacing earlier prophecies and theories. The original Rockets dealt half with the past and half with the future; but events moved so fast that a thorough revision, called Rockets and Space Travel, was made in 1946. A few printings later, research on high-altitude rockets, predicted in the first edition, was in full swing. New missiles were being developed, and space-travel theory was forging ahead, so 1951 saw a second complete overhaul and another expansion of the title. - Since then there have been six years of fast progress all along the line. Obviously the book had to keep up. Accordingly, in this latest revision, 40 per cent of the material relates to the past, 40 per cent to the present, and only 20 per cent to the future - and the near future at that. The chapters on rockets into space have been completely recast, so extensive have been the developments in that field, culminating in Project Vanguard - the artificial-satellite project which is already in the preliminary testing stage. - The story of the Peenemünde rocket research institute of the German Army was completely rewritten in personal consultation with Walter Dornberger (V-2), Wernher von Braun, and other Peenemündians now in this country. Other additions include detailed descriptions of war rockets which were still secret in 1951, and of new rocket fuels. - There are two appendixes and a bibliography; the fact that the latter has more than doubled indicates the constantly growing interest in this subject of which Willy Ley remains the authoritative popular historian. 147 p. with 85 illustrations in Text and many photos.
