Ley, Willy  
Rockets, Missiles, and Space Travel

Publisher: New York: The Viking Press, 1957..
Revised Ed, 3rd Ptg. 22 X 15 cm. VG/G. Light grey cloth, red titles on front board & spine, xvi. 528 pp, 8 ff b & w photo plates, 85 figures, bibliography, index. Spine browned, spine ends and corners worn, bookplate on front paste-down. DJ paper browned, spine faded, edges worn and chipped, laminated by previous owner (the adhesive has caused some bleeding of the ink, giving a somewhat muddy appearance). 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.
