(#163937) BULLETIN OF THE MANCHESTER INTERPLANETARY SOCIETY. June 1938 ., Eric Burgess, number 3.

Manchester: Manchester Interplanetary Society, June 1938 (number 3). Folio, single sheet, mimeographed on one side only. The Manchester Interplanetary Society was founded on 9 June 1936 by Eric Burgess (1920-2005) and a small group of rocketry enthusiasts. It was disbanded in early 1939 due to lack of money and lack of helpers to run the Society. Burgess published several books on rockets and space flight in the 1950s, beginning with ROCKET PROPULSION (1952), and a number of books in the 1980s and 1990s chronicling of the initial exploration of the solar system. He left the UK for the US in 1956 and resided there until his death in 2005. Burgess, the science correspondent of the Christian Science Monitor, covered America's Pioneer program, a series of United States unmanned space missions designed for planetary exploration, from its earliest missions in 1958 to Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11, which explored the outer planets and left the Solar System. Old mailing folds, else a fine copy. Rare. (#163937).
