L'Espace (1962)




Guillot, René. Illustrated by Giannini.  L'espace: Encyclopédie en couleurs.
Geneve: Hachette. (100 pp.) 1962


So this is a sort of re-run. I blogged about the English translation of this book here 10 years ago:

So I did many more scans so you can appreciate the wonderful art in this book. Originally printed in French this has a number of beautiful painting of the planets adn of proposed manned exploration.



 The first part of the book takes us through the planets.








And last is Pluto
 In the second part they talk about manned flight and what had happen so far and what was to come.
