Government Printing Office, Washington D C. 1959. Softcover, with dust jacket. 221 pages (complete). A decent copy of one of the most important and influential- certainly in terms of optimism and eagerness - Government reports on the future of Space Exploration. "By the end of the next 10 years, we will have developed more sophisticated manned vehicles which are capable of maneuvering in space, making rendezvous with other satellites .. The space pilot, on return, will be able to land at an airstrip on the Earth more or less of his own choosing .. a manned exploration [to the moon] could take place in just about 10 years (perhaps in as little as 7, if a very high priority were placed ..).. [to] Mars and Venus, manned exploration will not take place until a few years after 1968 .." Stapled spine. The covers have handling marks and wear. They are secure. The contents have evidence of keen use throughout. Nonetheless, the pages are firm, clean, clear, orderly, tidy, assured, competent. fk. Good/No Jacket.
