Description: Three reasons may be assigned for ascribing peculiar interest to the study of meteorites: First, They are our only tangible sources of knowledge regarding the universe beyond us. Second. They are portions of extra-terrestrial bodies. Third. They are a part of the economy of Nature. No survey of Nature can be considered complete which does not include an account of them. For these and other reasons the writer has long experienced a fascination and delight in the study of these bodies. In seeking works for his guidance, however, he has found a lamentable lack of any which treated the subject comprehensively. While some phases of the subject and the characteristics of many individual falls have been investigated with admirable thoroughness, the subject as a whole has not received extensive treatment. The admirable Meteoritenkunde of Cohen would have left little to be desired had its author been permitted to carry out his broadly conceived plan, but this privilege was unfortunately denied him. Meuniers Meteorites has not been revised in recent years and Fletchers Introduction, while a model of its kind, is limited in its scope. That the present writer has been greatly assisted by the above works and many others in the preparation of this one needs hardly to be stated. Detailed references to these works, however, were deemed to be impracticable except where it was thought that a fuller treatment of certain subjects might be desired by some readers. In such cases references have been given. Much assistance in the preparation of illustrations for this work was given the writer by the late Prof. Henry A. Ward. Mr.D. M.Barringer generously furnished photographs of Meteor Crater, Arizona, and the writer is indebted to the Journal of Geology through its editor, Prof. T.C. Chamberlin, for the loan of several cuts
