History of Liquid Rocket Propellants (e-book)

A well-written history of rocket engine propellants up to 1971. Most of them are still in use today. I can't think of any not covered.

My chemistry teacher back then explained that mercaptans contain sulfur, and cautioned that not all careers in the chemistry field were like the author's.
Still a good read today, and puts me in mind of the 'rocket gardens' at White Sands Missile range or NASA facilities showing the immediate results of all those '50s and '60s labors - and add appreciation to the images from across the solar system thanks to their descendents.
