The fifth edition of Catalogue of Meteorites will, like previous editions, become an essential reference volume for all those with an informed interest in meteorites. It is the definitive descriptive list of the British Natural History Museum, 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. An important development is the addition of CD-ROM to accompany the book, which includes greatly expanded information and an important search facility.
