Hello fellow collectors,

Together they contain an astounding 685 photographs of 461 different
Antarctic meteorites in multiple forms:
Book 1. Photographic catalog of the antarctic meteorites: With special
reference to those represented in the collections of the National Institute

Book 2. Photographic catalog of the selected Antarctic meteorites: in the
collection of National Institute of Polar Research, Tokyo, Japan, viii +

Features: 178 photographs of 134 meteorites selected from the NIPR
Collection. The majority of the photographs are of whole or broken stones
in the condition they were found on the ice. Some photographs show cut or
broken faces made during the sampling of the meteorites for investigation.
A brief description of the specimen is included with each photograph.
