Respond Martians (1968) (part 1)

Respond Martians (1968) is another soviet space book I have recently found. It is concerned with the planet Mars and its exploration. It has a number of interesting illustration so I will break this posting into two parts.

Respond Martians. USSR. 163 x 215 mm (6.4" x 8.5")144 p. 1968.

I will mostly let the illustrations speak for themselves. The 1st half of the book covers history and historic stories about the exploration of Mars and interactions with its inhabitants.

 As people dreamed of the canals on Mars and what its inhabitants might be like if they built a great canal system.

 A very nice section about HG Wells' War of the Worlds.

Tune in again when I continue with the planned manned exploration of Mars!
