Beitraege zur Weltraumforschung und Astronautik [Contributions to Space Research and Astronautics] (1950-52) / Zeitschrift for Raketentechnik [Journal of Rocket Technology]


Scarce run of 15 issues of this semi-technical bimonthly astronautics journal. Founded in 1950 under the editorship of Heinze Gartmann, the journal would gain prominence in 1952 when it published Wernher von Braun's The Mars Project in a special issue. In 1956, the journal became a larger sized quarterly. Issues from the first two years of publication, offered here, are particularly scarce and feature futuristic drawings on their covers, one paying tribute to Oberth and the other celebrating the Second International Congress for Astronautics in London. Issues offered here are:

  • 1950: Nos. 2, 3, 4, 6 (April, June, August, December)

  • 1951: Nos. 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 (Feb., April, Aug., Oct., Dec.)

  • 1952: No. 1 (Jan.)

  • 1953: No. 3 (July)

  • 1954: Nos. 2, 4 (Apr., Oct.) + 8pg. index to 1954 issues

  • 1955: Nos. 2, 4 (Apr., Dec.)

Stuttgart and Frankfurt, West Germany: Gesellschaft fur Weltraumforshung [Society for Space Research], 1950-1955. Condition is generally very good or better. Edges chipped with loss to one issue, not affecting text; small name written on the front covers of a few issues; internally clean and bright. Very scarce.
