Seventeen space dawns (1963)
My faithful readers have given me this translated title : Seventeen space dawns (1963). This is sort of fill-in post since the book is mostly Russian text and I really just wanted to share some of the graphics from this book.
"The book was written by Gherman Titov, the second Soviet cosmonaut after Yuri Gagarin. The title refers to his Vostok 2 mission, in which he orbited the earth 17 times. The title page identifies him as "Hero of the Soviet Union...Pilot-Cosmonaut of the USSR." The subtitle says "Autobiographical novel."
