Beyond the Moon: Future explorations in interplanetary space (1971)

Just got in an upgraded copy of this. I love this cool cover.

Colby, C.B. Beyond the Moon: Future Explorations in Interplanetary Space. New York: Coward, McCann & Geoghegan. (48 p.) 28 cm.

Primarily a heavily annotated photo album. This one is notable for its space art of space shuttle prototypes, and timetables of space stations, Moon bases and exploration of the solar system. Reprinted several times with a new photographic cover.


  1. Thanks for stopping by the ephemera blog and leaving a comment, John. It's nice to hear from you. The interview I did with you was a popular post. Thanks again for your interest and support.

  2. A surface base on the Moon by 1978 -- manned exploration of Mars by 1981! All those dates must have seemed quite practical, at the time, comparing the progress from 1961-1971 with what was thought to be within reach from 1971-1981.
