The Space Book (1962)
The Space Book is yet another obscure title. I have never seen another and find it memorable for its cover.
Longo, Angelo and Barry, Catharine. Illustrated by Longo, Angelo. The Space Book. New York: Paxton-Slade Publishing Co. (44 p.) 29 cm. (1962)
It is a very basic text about astronomy, rockets and the manned exploration of space. Simple illustrations include planetary surfaces, spacesuits, various launch vehicles and spaceships of the future. It is part of the "Paxton-Slade Picture-Story Books" series.
