When I was in grade school back in the 70s, the school library had a pre-Sputnik nonfiction book on space travel. I borrowed it several times, and the pictures engraved themselves in my brain, as such things do.

For decades, I've been idly trying to track down the book, which is tricky, given I didn't remember the title. It wasn't The Conquest Of Space or The Complete Book Of Space. Finally, I followed the right nostalgia-Tumblr, saw a familiar image, Googled it, got a name, and ordered a used copy off of Amazon: By Space Ship To The Moon by Jack Coggins and Fletcher Pratt. Oh yeah, that's the stuff...
