Your Trip Into Space (1954)

I blogged about the American edition (1953) in 2010. so here is the British edition.

Poole, Lynn. Your Trip into Space.  Illustrated by Clifford Geary. London: Lutterworth Press. (192 pp.) 1954. 

 I appreciate the optimistic tone of this "blurb"

 Again the tone that we are sure that it will be 50 years or less shows how unsure it would go from "idea" to reality.  15 years later people were on the Moon.

 Note that launches were marked by a "signaling flare" in case you weren't paying attention :)

It ends with this phase: "Undoubtedly their dreams and yours will come true."
