LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London: Harrap, 1981. Publishers original black boards with gilt lettering on spine. Dustwrapper: unclipped, slight sunning to spine and edges, now protected in Brodart. White endpapers, no inscriptions, slight offset. 272pp. including index plus 16 page b/w photographs. Very light foxing to closed page edges otherwise pages clean and bright in firm binding. James Oberg has researched deeply into the Soviet space effort and is the leading Soviet Space Watcher in the USA. This book is the fascinating and often astonishing account of his researches. For the first time he reveals: How Khrushchev sponsored early space successes as political surprises sprung on the West; The life story of the mysterious Sergey Korolev; The facts behind the hushed up 'slaughter at Tyuratum' in 1960; How, when the Soviet Union failed in the race to the moon, they convinced most of the West there had never been a race at all; About the forged photographs revealing unlucky cosmonauts being painted out and becoming, in 'Orwellian terms, 'unpersons'; About Apollo-Soyuz, the handshake in space that cost a quarter of a billion dollars. The author brilliantly penetrates the secrecy shrouded Russian space programme, not only telling of its unpublicized disasters but also giving credit to its not inconsiderable successes. A magnificent rare collectors copy. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
