The Space Book (1962)

Longo, Angelo and Barry, Catharine. Illustrated by Longo, Angelo. The Space Book. New York: Paxton-Slade Publishing Co. (44 p.) 29 cm. Illustrated Boards,

A very interesting book that I don't think I have shared before (after 400+ books it begins to get a little foggy).

With 2 color drawings it has basic text about astronomy, rockets and the manned exploration of space.  Simple illustrations include planetary surfaces, spacesuits, various launch vehicles and spaceships of the future. "Paxton-Slade Picture-Story Books" No. 404.
