All About Rockets and Jets (1955)

Pratt, Fletcher. Illustrated by Coggins, Jack. All About Rockets and Jets. New York: Random House. (139 p.) 24 cm.
Written by Fletcher Pratt, with art by Jack Coggins and an introduction by Willy Ley this could almost be a follow-up to their "Rockets, Jets, Guided Missiles and Space Ships" (1951). This focuses mostly on the history of rockets and their military uses including bazookas, missiles, and rocket-driven submarines. The last 2 chapters discuss rocket planes and rockets in space with a couple of illustrations of the Earth from space and a space station. Allabout Books #13.
