A catologue and bibliography of Australian meteorites, with census and taxonomy
In 1897 Dr. T. Cooksey, at that time Mineralogist to the Australian Museum, published a Catalogue and Bibliography of Australian Meteorites. Since that date the number of meteorite falls recorded from Australia has doubled and the literature has increased proportionately, therefore, the present occasion has been utilised to bring the record up to date. The general plan adopted by Cooksey has been followed in this revision, the chief departure being in the method of entering the references to published papers, which are numbered consecutively and referred to by number under each meteorite. An attempt has been made to indicate where the main mass of each fall is now deposited, but here great accuracy cannot be claimed as changes take place from time to time. Those who desire more detailed information regarding the distribution of Australian Meteorites in collections must consult the various published catalogues.
