    More Information:

    The Mike Mars Series Complete in Eight Volumes, including: Mike Mars, Astronaut; Mike Mars Flies the X-15; Mike Mars at Cape Canaveral; Mike Mars in Orbit; Mike Mars Flies the Dyna-Soar; Mike Mars, South Pole Spaceman; Mike Mars and the Mystery Satellite; Mike Mars Around the Moon. Garden City: Doubleday, 1961-1964.

     

    All volumes are first editions except for Mike Mars Flies the X-15. Eight octavo volumes. A sharp, tight set of this juvenile series. Rarely found complete and in this condition. All very good or better in dust jackets.

     

    These books offer a wonderful view into early '60s America when we were deep in the space race. Though Mike Mars books do a good job of conveying the training and work routine of astronauts involved in the Gemini program, they were also great propaganda tools for NASA and the Air Force.
