The Boys Book of Rockets (1950)

This is a short follow--up to the earlier 1947 U.S. edition of this book blogged here:

Yates, Raymond F. Illustrated by Yates, Raymond F. The Boy's Book of Rockets. London : TW Laurie. (131 p.) 22 cm.  UK reprint of 1947 1st US edition.

I like this British description of the book (from the book jacket).  I also like the description that starts the chapter about going to the Moon.

With no updating (really at all) there is not much else to show from this book that you have not already seen. But here is an excuse for the standard late 1940's picture for the Viking test rockets in the Southwest desert.
