### Rockets and Missiles (1957)

I really like the cover of this one with evoking exploration and how rockets will take us to the moon.

UPDATE :Reader Graham Bates tells me "The cover illustration is, in fact, from a series of ads issued by Northrop Aircraft in the late 1950's (the Snark being one of their missiles).

Bergaust, Erik. Rockets and Missiles. New York: GP Putnam's Sons. (48 p.) 28 cm.

This one is a pictorial encyclopedia of the rockets and missiles used by the Army, Navy and Air Force. It also has sections on research rockets and "missiles of tomorrow" It gives 1 page to each type of missile. With a 1 page glossary of rocket and missile terms at the back of the book.

1. John,

The cover illustration is, in fact, from a series of ads issued by Northrop Aircraft in the late 1950's (the Snark being one of their missiles).
