This 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 a CD-ROM to accompany the book, which includes greatly expanded information (literature references and analytical data for each meteorite) and a highly useful search facility.

Catalogue of Meteorites is available to order from our co-publisher Cambridge University Press. For details of how to contact them, please visit Publishing partners.
