Imaging Saturn; The Voyager Flights to Saturn. Henry S. F. Cooper, Jr.
New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1982. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xiii, [1], 210 pages. Illustrations (some color). Ex-library with usual library markings. DJ is in a plastic sleeve. Henry S. F. Cooper Jr. was a writer who reached beyond the planet to pioneer reporting on space travel. Mr. Cooper, a descendant James Fenimore Cooper, was the author of eight books and a longtime writer for The New Yorker. Mr. Cooper celebrated scientific achievement, addressed scientific failure and demystified what was behind both. Mr. Cooper had hoped to join The New Yorker since he was a teenager. After college, at an editor’s invitation, he submitted two Talk of the Town articles — one on a cockroach hunter, the other on a meteorologist ensconced in Belvedere Castle in Central Park — but received no response. He then spent what he remembered as a few miserable months at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Finally, he was summoned by the editor, William Shawn, who was so impressed with his two articles that he simply asked, “When can you start?” He wrote for the magazine for 35 years. He also contributed to The New York Times Book Review and other publications.

Spacecraft Tracking. William R. Corliss.
Washington, DC: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1969. presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. 26 cm, [2], 18 pages. Wraps. Illustrations. This is one of the America in Space: The First Decade series. William Roger Corliss (August 28, 1926 – July 8, 2011) was an American physicist and writer who was known for his interest in collecting data regarding anomalous phenomena. Arthur C. Clarke described him as "Fort's latter-day - and much more scientific - successor." Starting in 1974, Corliss published a number of works in the "Sourcebook Project". Each volume was devoted to a scientific field (archeology, astronomy, geology, et cetera) and featured articles culled almost exclusively from scientific journals. Corliss was inspired by Charles Fort, who earlier also collected reports of unusual phenomena. Many of the articles in Corliss's works were mentioned in Charles Fort's works. Unlike Fort, known for his idiosyncratic writing style, Corliss initially offered little in the way of his own opinions or editorial comments, preferring to let the articles speak for themselves. Corliss wrote many other books and articles, notably including 13 educational books about astronomy, outer space and space travel for NASA and a similar number for the Atomic Energy Commission and the National Science Foundation.
