This is a heavily-illustrated and thoroughly researched compendium of virtually every kind of real, hypothetical, and fictional spacecraft ever created - in terms of sheer breadth it's astonishing, particularly when it comes to unbuilt spacecraft of the 50s-70s. There are two five star books in here trying to get out - a complete history of real and proposed spacecraft and a history of the spaceship in fiction, they both crowd each other a little in this huge volume, but the contrasts and counterpoints do make for interesting reading.
It's big, it's expensive, but if you've got a serious interest in spaceflight or in science fiction's depiction of spaceflight this book is unique and valuable.
