Going into Space. Arthur C. Clarke.
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1954. First Edition. Hardcover. 117 pages. Illustrations. Some discoloration inside boards, DJ somewhat worn and soiled: small tears, small pieces missing at spine, small rough spot front DJ. Derived from a Kirkus review: A discussion of the outlook, probabilities and possibilities of present and future space travel--by the chairman of the British Interplanetary Society. This has the potential to be one of the most authoritative books for the general audience. This surveys the rocket, jet and space travel world from man's earliest thoughts about them. Coming up through history then, Mr. Clarke traces developments down to the German V-2 and the latest modern models. Turning skyward he analyzes the atmosphere, the planets and their positions in the universe, the work now going on for flight to them, and what may happen when man gets to the moon.

Flying to the Moon; An Astronaut's Story. Michael Collins.
Farrar Straus Giroux, 1994. 2nd Sunburst Edition, updated edition. Presumed 1st printing. Trade paperback. [10], 162 pages. Illustrations. Some sticker residue on cover. Some wear and soiling to cover. Michael Collins (born October 31, 1930) (Major General, USAF, Ret.), is an American former astronaut and test pilot. Selected as part of the third group of fourteen astronauts in 1963, he flew into space twice. His first spaceflight was on Gemini 10, in which he and Command Pilot John Young performed two rendezvous with different spacecraft and Collins undertook two extra-vehicular activities (EVAs). His second spaceflight was as the Command Module Pilot for Apollo 11. While he stayed in orbit around the Moon, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin left in the Lunar Module to make the first manned landing on its surface. He is one of 24 people to have flown to the Moon. Collins was the fourth person, and third American, to perform an EVA; and is the first person to have performed more than one EVA. He attended the United States Military Academy, and from there he joined the United States Air Force. He was accepted to the U.S. Air Force Experimental Flight Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in 1960. He was accepted for the third group. After retiring from NASA in 1970 he took a job in the Department of State as Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs. A year later he became the director of the National Air and Space Museum. He held this position until 1978 when he stepped down to become undersecretary of the Smithsonian Institution. In 1980 he took the job as Vice President of LTV Aerospace.
