Actual postage (media mail is cheapest) is additional. PM me.

1. How to Make Amateur Rockets, 2nd ed, John Wickman. No copyright date. Includes sections on Designing a Solid Rocket Motor, Making a Motor and Testing It, Designing and Building Your Rocket, and others. I didn't count the pages, they're numbered according to sections rather than just sequentially, but for reference it's about half an inch thick. Very Good condition. $20.

2. Rocket Propellant Handbook, 1960. Dust cover is pretty ratty but the book is fine esp for being 60+ years old. Lists physical properties of many solid and liquid propellants; many properties such as thermal conductivity, viscosity, electrical conductivity, etc. are listed as a function of temperature. Yes, you can probably find much of this info on the web, but here it's all in one place. $15.

3. Practical Dispersion: A Guide to Understanding and Formulating Slurries. 1996, out of print. Very technical and it's geared toward paints, coatings, adhesives, and other industrially-important solid-liquid dispersions. Still, I found it useful in understanding some of the aspects of surfactants in propellants. Very Good to Excellent condition. $30.

Best -- Terry

EDIT: Rocket Propellant Handbook was sold.

Sixty years ago I would often take a long walk to the public library to check out the "Rocket Propellant Handbook". It was really a fun book to thumb through. I am a little surprised a rocket chemist like you would want to part with it. Interestingly enough, Boris Kit passed away in 2018. He was 107 years old. PM sent.

The "Rocket Propellant Handbook" was a great deal. I have seen that book go for $500. Are any other books left?

I still have the "Practical Dispersion" book on surfactants and preparing slurries ($30), and Wickman's "How to Make Amateur Rockets" ($20).
