I just discovered this at the local bookstore.  "Rockets" by Robert H. Goddard,
Which consists of "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" and his second big
monograph, "Liquid Propellant Rocket Development" has been reprinted by Dover
Publications.  Any self-respecting rocket geek should go out and buy this
book--It's only $11.95 and is available online at www.doverpublications.com.
Do a search on Goddard at their site and you'll get right to it.

A Method of Reaching Extreme altitudes first appeared in 1920, then the
American Rocket Society reprinted the pair of papers in 1946.  Both papers
later appeared in the "Papers of Robert H. Goddard" around 1970.  They were
reprinted without figures in a thick NASA compendium maybe 5 years ago.  So
this little book is a real opportunity to get "A Method of Reaching Extreme
Altitudes" cheap.
