Happy to see one of my favorite books—"Ignition! An Informal History of Liquid Rocket Propellants", by John Clark—mentioned in this Science article on the particularly nasty substance chlorine trifluoride:

Although "Ignition" is noted as being out-of-print, both paper and digital eds are still available (see Amazon, AbeBooks).

Really love these sort of detailed, expert memoir-histories of niche subjects.

I can attest to the existence of a current print edition : I received one as a birthday present a couple of years ago!
