Meteor Crater - Third Edition
by James P. Tobin
This is the third and much expanded edition of James Tobin's history of the first hundred years of investigations at Meteor Crater. Included in the volume are narrative tours of the sites on the crater rim and slopes, as well as a narrative hike of all the historic locations on the floor of the crater. The second half of the book is devoted to historical paper by several of the earliest investigators. These papers are presented close to their original form with all their photographs if they had them. Commentary by James is limited to before and after these early works to not alter their form. Reading this work is as close to visiting the crater as can be done with a book.

The new book on meteorites by Alain Carion can quickly cause the reader to run out of superlatives. It is excellent, richly illustrated with pictures, a wonderful introductory book for the beginner, but a book no seasoned collector can be without.
Packed into its seventy odd pages is a wealth of information on meteorites. Beginning with the history of meteorite study in the 1500's. By the time the book ends there are pictures of meteorites which landed only months ago.
All the important topics of meteorites are covered, including meteorite hunting, impact craters and impact rocks, meteorite classifications, tektites, and much more. The second half of the book is pictures with descriptions and histories of dozens of famous meteorites. Many of the photos are of specimens in Alain's own impressive collection.
"Meteorites" by Alain Carion is the must have resource for any person wanting to get a well rounded understanding of these fascinating pieces of rock from beyond the Earth.
The Art of Collecting Meteorites is the first book dedicated solely to the theory and methodology of collecting meteorites. The hobby’s evolution is covered from its earliest beginnings among the "rich, royal or religious" to the advent of the "Bessey Speck."
The Art of Collecting Meteorites offers the author’s unvarnished observations to help the collector understand and harness the forces driving the marketing of these souvenirs from space.
