Here is "Adventure in Space, Space Pilots", by Willey Ley and illustrated by John Polgreen, from 1957.

This large hard cover book is 8 3/4 x 11 1/8" and is in excellent condition on the inside with minor wear on the outside covers (including a vintage $1.00 price sticker on the front cover.)

The Ley crater on the far side of the moon is named after Willey Ley.

John Polgreen's high contrast illustration style is very inspiring.

If you have seen my other items, you know I really enjoy the concepts and artistry of the mid-century future themes. This book is another representation of this.
