Three items which may be of interest.

First, I came across a reference to a paper by M. Littmann and T. Suomela,
'Crowdsourcing, the great meteor storm of 1833, and the founding of meteor
science', Endeavour 38(2), 130-138 (2014). Abstract available via

Second, it's a while since I posted to the list. Reason - I was working on
a paper that was just published in Notes & Records: The Royal Society
Journal of the History of Science. Although Irish chemist William Higgins
analyzed the Mooresfort and Limerick meteorites, he is best known for his
battle with John Dalton over priority for the developoment of the atomic
theory. My article "John Dalton and the London atomists" can be accessed by
clicking on the article title listed in the FirstCite section in the lower
left hand corner of the journal homepage at
http://rsnr.royalsocietypublishing.org/. The abstract is availabe for free,
as will the article after 1 year - perhaps sooner - if the Royal Society
offers free content access as they periodically do. Otherwise it's the
library or pay for download for now - no financial benefit for me - such is
the world of academic publishing.

Third, regarding Higgins and meteorites, you might want to check out my
article published in Notes & Records in 2010 entitled "William Higgins at
the Dublin Society", which is available for free download. Go to
http://rsnr.royalsocietypublishing.org/ and search under the article title.
The Mooresfort meteorite plays an important story in this paper.

Hope to be able to post sooner and pick up on Meteorite Manuscripts where I
left off a while ago.
