To the Moon and Beyond By Space Ship (1953)




"To the Moon and Beyond by Space Ship : Supplementary Reading Material for Space Minded Pianists."

Here is a weird treat.  This is some 1953 sheet music that was created (perhaps) to cash in on the space craze and to entice young piano students to practice. The text and illustrations are exactly what helped young pianists want to go into space!

Weybright, June. Illustrated by Joseph R. Redka. To the Moon and Beyond by Space Ship.  New York : Belwin, Inc. (24 p.) 30 cm. 1953.
