Hello All List Members,
Mike Jensen, Bill Jensen and I are very proud to announce the result of our
A Brand New Book About Meteorites.
The best way to describe it is probably to quote the Foreword:
"It started as an idle conversation while soaking up the sun of Tucson in
early February 2000. We had gone through most of the Show and seen hundreds
of meteorites, some well known and some nearly unknown, and we were wishing
aloud for some form of reference material to help our flagging memories. Our
copies of the Catalogue of Meteorites were way too valuable and heavy to take
on the road. Since I also collect minerals I had a copy of the Glossary of
Mineral Species and wished I could find something as easy to carry around and
thumb through on the fly."
"Then Mike mentioned that he had about 1000 meteorites in a database in
his computer at home."
"The rest, as they say, is history....... "
And the result is the book we are presenting to you today.
