Flight - "the world of manned flight- from its primitive beginnings through the sophisticated present to the science-fiction future - makes up the scope of this book. It covers the history of flight, the theory of aerodynamics, propulsion, navigation, and air-traffic control, testing, design and other aspects of this world".
Early Man - "where did man come from? This question has preoccupied human thought for thousands of years, conceivably tens of thousands of years".
Planets - "the space age has given new impetus both to man's curiosity about the planets and to his need to know more about them. The techniques of modern astronomy are expanding planetary knowledge at an accelerating rate, and the day is approaching when man will visit other planets."
The Body - "there are many possible approaches to a study of the human body, but the most basic is to begin with an examination of how the body is constructed and how it functions. These two fundamentals form the theme of this book".
The Mind - "many sciences are contributing to an understanding of that elusive subject summed up as "the mind", and many of the findings of most of them are set in this volume. The emphasis, however, falls chiefly on two fields of scientific inquiry: neurology and psychology".
All 5 books are in like-new condition. There is some wear on the outside at the top and bottom of the binding. See pics.
Full of colorful and black and white illustrations, diagrams, photos and graphics. It's very cool to see science in the 1960's and how it's progressed to present time.
Great collectible books for your mid century abode.
