Boggs SpaceBooks announces it has secured permission from noted space historian and writer Frederick Ordway III to publish his classic 1962 "Annotated Bibliography of Space Science and Technology; A History of Astronautical Book Literature, 1931 through 1961" on their website at:
http://boggsspace.com/ordway.htm

This valuable bibliography lists over 300 books in the astronautical and rocket related fields, a short description of each book and a link to the Boggs SpaceBooks database allowing customers to check to see if it is in the Boggs SpaceBooks inventory.

"This long out of print and difficult to find volume contains a treasure trove of information on earlier space books. We are delighted that Frederick Ordway has given us permission to place this on our website in an effort to serve collectors and researchers around the world" said Donald Boggs, co-owner of Boggs SpaceBooks.

Frederick Ordway III lives in Arlington, Virginia. He was a long time associate of Wernher von Braun, a former director of the National Space Institute and National Space Society. He is a member of the National Academy of Science.
