Die Meteoriten in Sammlungen und ihre Literatur, nebst einem Versuch den Tauschwert der Meteoriten zu bestimmen

Nature volume 57, page 53 | Download Citation



THE author has sought information relative to the meteorite collections, public and private, from those in charge of them, and has collated and indexed the results in the form of an alphabetical list, giving for each preserved meteorite a statement of the date of fall or find, a list of the more important memoirs relating thereto, and the weights preserved in the various collections. The work has been carefully done, and will be very useful to collectors of these extra-terrestrial bodies. As regards the pecuniary values to be assigned to the meteorites, we are afraid that the dealers will eschew all such mathematical calculations as are suggested by the author, and will in each case get, as heretofore, what they can.
