Thank you!The photos and written description make it very
clear on the many differences on fusion crust.
Your knowledge will be a great help and benefit to "Space Rocks".

Just heard from Kevin Kichinka that he has less than 50 copies left of the well-illustrated "The Art of Collecting Meteorites" ...

Another well-illustrated book:
METEORITES, Their Impact on Science and History
Edited by Brigitte Zanda & Monica Rotaru
Book has a nice historic overview of meteorite falls (Ensisheim 1492, Lucé 1777, Siena 1794, L'Aigle 1803,...) and chapters on paleontological facts, mineralogy, isotopic analysis and classification of meteorites.
ISBN 0-521-79940-6

Thanks for posting that book info. I have the book from a while ago, but only recently acquired a crusted slice of Lucé. Now I need to go back and read about it. I like it when a text reference breaths new life into a specimen.

I bet it would have helped in my article about Lucé:

Photo of two excellent booklets:

the well known " Art of collecting meteorites " by Kevin Kichinka with chapters on planning a collection, meteorite hunting expeditions and a historical timeline with meteorite events...

a German language softcover " Meteorite - Boten aus dem Weltall " (Meteorites - Messengers from Space) with excellent color photos of meteorites and color photos of craters all over the world, especially interesting old photos of the Hoba meteorite in Namibia

I loved the British version of Nield's book "Incoming! Or, Why We Should Stop Worrying And Learn To Love The Meteorite" It made me add a sample of Barwell to my wishlist.
Dr. Grady's book sounds as if every meteorite collector will want to have it inthier library. A photo guide to meteorite classifications!

Thanks,

Peter

I have to say that I enjoy meteorite books nearly as much as the meteorites themselves! My newest additions include Space Nomads by Lincoln and Jean LaPaz, Meteorites Messengers from Space and Meteorites of Alberta. Didn't see these listed in the sticky so I thought I would mention them.

I see in the current "Astronomy" magazine (June 2012 page 67) they're saying that next month's issue will have a story titled "How to Collect Rocks from Space"

Just wanted to share a new meteorite book title with the group, it's called Meteorites Witnesses of the Origin of the Solar System by Franz Brandstatter, Ludovic Ferriere and Christian Koberl. My copy arrived this week and it is full of stunning photographs and excellent content too. The main emphasis is on the Vienna collection as it was published to mark the reopening of the modernized meteorite hall in Vienna. I highly recommend this new release!
