The Science Book of Space Travel (1954)
I love the cover on this one.
(1954) Goodwin, Harold Leland. Illustrated by Coggins, Jack. The Science Book of Space Travel . New York: Franklin Watts Inc. (213 p.) 20 cm.
Filled with drawings by Jack Coggins this book includes all areas of space travel, including a history of rockets, travel to the Moon and the planets, and UFOs. A good overview of the popular space science of the time. See also the 1956 US softcover and 1957 UK hardcover reprints.
Very detailed and almost romantic this book has some very nice illustrations.
