This book is a complete pictorial history of the methods of flight and spaceflight throughout history, from the Greeks of 360 B.C., up to modern day. It is not a history of spaceflight, rather an illustrated look at the concepts behind spaceflight. Illustrations range from Cyrano De Bergerac's flights of fancy to the turn of the century's dreams up to the different international designs of the shuttles today.

Foreword by Arthur C. Clarke
