DJ has some wear, soiling, edge tears and chips. Some edge and page soiling. Willy Otto Oskar Ley (October 2, 1906 – June 24, 1969) was a German-American science writer, spaceflight advocate, and historian of science who helped to popularize rocketry, spaceflight, and natural history in both Germany and the United States. The crater Ley on the far side of the Moon is named in his honor. In January 1935, Ley fled Germany for Great Britain and ultimately the United States. His book, Rockets, Missiles, and Space Travel was cited in the Space Handbook: Astronautics and its Applications, a staff report of the Select Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration of the U.S. House of Representatives, which provided non-technical information about spaceflight to U.S. policy makers. Lay later became the curator of the National Air and Space Museum.

Astronautics and Aeronautics, 1972; Chronology of Science, Technology, and Policy, NASA SP-4017. Science Library of Congress, Technology Division.
Washington, DC: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1974. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. ix, [1], 580, [6] pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Chronology of major NASA launches, 1972. Chronology of manned space flight, 1972. Index. NASA SP-4017. Astronautics (or cosmonautics) is the theory and practice of navigation beyond Earth's atmosphere. The term astronautics was coined in the 1920s by J.-H. Rosny, president of the Goncourt academy, in analogy with aeronautics. Because there is a degree of technical overlap between the two fields, the term aerospace is often used to describe both at once. In 1930, Robert Esnault-Pelterie published the first book on the new research field. As with aeronautics, the restrictions of mass, temperatures, and external forces require that applications in space survive extreme conditions: high-grade vacuum, the radiation bombardment of interplanetary space and the magnetic belts of low Earth orbit. Space launch vehicles must withstand titanic forces, while satellites can experience huge variations in temperature in very brief periods. Extreme constraints on mass cause astronautical engineers to face the constant need to save mass in the design in order to maximize the actual payload that reaches orbit. The early history of astronautics is theoretical: the fundamental mathematics of space travel was established by Isaac Newton in his 1687 treatise Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. By the early 1920s, American Robert Goddard was developing liquid-propellant rockets, which would in a few brief decades become a critical component in the designs of such famous rockets as the V-2 and Saturn V.
