CLEATOR, P.E. - Rockets Through Space or The Dawn of Interplanetary Travel.

London, Allen & Unwin 1936. Octavo publisher's cloth and dustwrapper; 246pp, 22 plates, 21 ills through the text. A bit of browning to edges and endpapers, rather good in a mildly used dustwrapper. ¶ First edition and hard to find in dustwrapper; harder in such good shape. The first British book on astronautics and often called the first authoritive work to be written in English, which allowing for some qualifications is not totally untrue. Cleator was the founder of the British Interplanetary Society which, faced with a government hostile to any experimentation - practising rocketeers were charged under the 1875 Explosives Act - saw their role as promulgators and educators.
