In 1884 Prof. F.W. Clarke prepared an exhibit of American precious stones as part of the United States National Museum's comtribution to the New Orleans exhibition, which was displayed at the Cincinnati exhibition in the following year before returning to Washington to be incorporated into the mineral collection of the museum. The great popularity of these collections is attested by the number of visitors, and their equally numerous queries, convinced the Museum authorities to extend the series and systematically build up the collection, slowly at first due to the expense involved, but enhanced by the magnanimity of a private individual
Handbook and descriptive catalogue of the meteorite collections in the United States National museum by United States National Museum ( Book )
4 editions published in 1916 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The handbook and catalogue presented herewith is intended primarily for the use of the general public, but the subject matter is at the same time so arranged as to meet the needs of the student and investigator as well, though naturally an exhaustive discussion of some of the more abtruse problems is omitted. 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

2 editions published in 1893 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Composition and structure of meteorites by George P Merrill ( Book )
4 editions published in 1930 in English and held by 194 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
