The fifth edition of Catalogue of Meteorites is, like previous editions, an essential reference volume for all those with an informed interest in meteorites. The volume is a complete catalogue of all authenticated meteorites, and gives information on their classification and chemistry. It is the definitive descriptive list of The Natural History Museum, London, which maintains the official world database of all known meteorite falls and finds. It includes the 10,000 new specimens recovered since publication of the fourth edition, including those from Antarctica and deserts. An important development is the addition of CD-ROM to accompany the book, which includes greatly expanded information (literature references and analytical data for each meteorite) and an important search facility. The Catalogue is the major reference volume for everyone interested in meteorites: professional scientists, meteoriticists, collectors, dealers, and academic libraries.

'... an exciting step forward ... the author is to be congratulated ...'. R. A. Howe, Mineralogical Magazine '... an essential reference volume for all those with an informed interest in meteorites.' Europe and Astronomy '... no one remotely involved with meteoritics, nor any science library, can afford to be without a copy.' Alex Bevan, Geological Magazine '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 a professional, you will want this book.' Meteorite 'This book represents a prodigious amount of human endeavour, and the meteorite community owes Monica Grady an enormous debt of gratitude. If you are a serious amateur or a professional, you will want this book.' Meteorite '... mainly a reference for the specialist or post graduate researcher. The level of detail is excellent and is possibly too much for most students ... The catalogue is a beautiful product with good quality covers, paper and printing.' Bill Willows, OUGS Journal
