Product description

Conquest of the Atom: A Simple Guide to Atomic Energy - Robert D. Potter (1947)
 
  An original 1940s vintage information book for the general reader, about nuclear power, bombs, testing and warfare - topical scientific issues of the post-World War 2 era - with its original pictorial dustjacket.  
 
Whilst the book shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible throughout, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage books - or a very suitable accessory for a late 1940s period room setting.
