Composition and structure of meteorites by George P Merrill( Book )

15 editions published between 1930 and 1962 in English and Undetermined and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper presented here was written to form a part of a series to be issued by the Smithsonian Institution, but on completion was judged too technical. Rather than attempt a popularization, Merrill withdrew it, substituting in its place a few pages of more easily comprehended generalities. However, since considering the matter, and in view of the fact that there is nothing in English covering the same ground, it has been thought advisable to further elaborate and publish as here presented. Students of meteorites in America are at this moment not too abundant, and anything that will excite interest, or be of help, is surely worthy of publication. Many of the views expressed are the author's own, and perhaps not generally accepted, is recognized. However, making this point sufficiently clear avoids misunderstandings

14 editions published in 1916 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The descriptive matter is most complete regarding falls of which the collections contain what is considerd a fair representation. The entire collection numbers at the the time this catalogue goes to press 329 falls and finds, and is accompanied by an equal number of thin sections for microscopic study
