`his fifth edition of Catalogue of Meteorites will, like previous editions, be the essential reference volume for all those with an informed interest in meteorites. It is the definitive descriptive list of the British Natural History Museum, which maintains the offical world database of all known meteorite falls and finds. Coverage includes the 10,000 new specimens recovered since the publication of the fourth edition, including those from Antarctica. Plus, for the first time, a CD-ROM accompanies the book, which includes greatly expanded information and an important search facility.

Contents

Foreword; Introduction; Use of the electronic catalogue; Summary of classified meteorites; Summary of geographical listing; List of meteorites by classification; List of meteorites by geographic location.

Reviews

"...excellent and definitive...The Catalogue is the major reference volume for everyone interested in meteorites: professional scientists, meteoriticists, collectors, dealers and academic libraries." Planetarian

"The new edition is a must-have book for anybody in the field. Taken as a whole, this package is an incredibly valuable resource for meteoriticists and nonscientists with an interest in meteorites." Meteorites & Planetary Science

"This book represents a prodigious amount of human endeavor, and the meteorite community owes Monica Grady an enormous debt of gratitude. If you are a serious amateur or professional, you will want this book." Meteorite, Feb. 2001

"...a critical resource volume for geologists and historians studying meteorites. It should be in every academic library. I also recommend it for individuals who often study the history and/or science associated with meteorites." Earth Science History
