Rockets into Space (1955)
...the Story of Rockets and the exciting possibilities of space travel.
Here is an rare and odd one. This was an early SRA book (Science Research Associates). SRA were classroom reading books. You would read a short book and then answer questions about it testing your reading comprehension. As you can tell this copy is an ex-school library copy and may be the only copy you will ever see.
Joseph, Alexander. Illustrated by Merrick, Don. Rockets into Space. Chicago: Science Research Associates. (48 p.)
Produced for use as a science text, this pamphlet presents basic rocket theory. Also discusses atomic fueled rockets, and a visit to the moon. It is part of the "Modern World of Science" series.
