First edition in English of one of the major technical handbooks on rocket propulsion systems of the period. An enlarged and completely revised edition of La Propulsion Par Fusées (1957) which includes then recent experimental work carried out at ONRA. With a preface by Maurice Roy and an introduction by Theodore von Kármán.
Amsterdam/London/New York: Elsevier, 1960. With the ownership signature and label of James Garber III, Air Force Captain of the Strategic Air Command who had trained as an aeronautical engineer and aerospace engineer at Hughes Aircraft. Very good or better. Binding is tight, sturdy and square. Aside from Garber's signature and label, internally clean with no markings. The unclipped dust jacket shows light shelfwear, protected in archival mylar.
