In very good condition, with a central vertical fold, light creasing, scattered toning and spotting, a small separation to the bottom of the spine, central fold, and the subsequent pages, an ink notation, a corner tear, and the expected wear from handling. The entire publication is the article ‘Neuere Ergebnisse der Raketenflugtechnik,’ roughly translating into ‘New Developments in Rocket Flight Technology,’ by Dr. Eugen Sanger, in which he proposed the first orbital bomber, ‘the silver bird,’ featuring images, diagrams, and illustrations.
