Rocket Propulsion (1963)

"An illustrated introduction to an increasingly important branch of science"

Even the most boring title can have amazing illustrations inside. Since the space race included educating children about space, books included rocket pictures to make the scientific principles interesting.

Theory of rockets, how they build rockets and the potential of nuclear rockets are all here.

Briscoe, Mervyn and Gerard Gibbons. Rocket Propulsion. London: Chatto and Windus. (63 p.) 21 cm

This one is an example of a book that was forgotten quickly as science advanced and it became obsolete.
