First published in 1949, and revised in 1953 this 1957 edition covers space flight topics in a series of 2 to 12 page articles. Topics (with drawings) of interest include: "Inside a rocket ship", "Building a space station", "The first Moon colony", and "Examining the Moon by rocket camera". Especially nice is the single color plate of a painting of a manned landing on the Moon. Also 1961 edition.
The factual articles are pleasantly visionary of what the future in space might look like. Even with only B&W drawings to illustrate it.
It also has a couple of interesting photographs.

Finally here is a rare picture and one I had never seen before, the 1936 founders of the British Interplanetary Society. This is a precious picture from the early space age.
