4to. [i-viii]ix-xiv, 147pp. First edition with the 1952 on the copyright page and "Published by the Viking Press in September, 1952" on the copyright page. A space-age treasury written by a Who's Who of rocket science. Even though NASA had not yet been created and Sputnik wouldn't be launched for another five years, this book and its often imitated illustrations let people know that the future had arrived. Very good in a good dustjacket with chips to head and foot of spine and corners. View More...
