Flight into Cosmic Space (1949)
My readers save me with this comment:
"While not a children's book, this is in the genre of popular science. The book, whose title is "Flight into Cosmic Space," was written by Ari Shternfeld, a Polish writer who emigrated to the Soviet Union in the 1930s and stayed in the USSR until he passed away in 1980. Shternfeld's earlier book "Introduction to Cosmonautics," published in 1937, was a very famous book that influenced a generation of young Russians. "
My love of space art is well known to my readers, in this case I bought this based on the sample illustrations in the seller's advertisement.
