Haro’s systematic description and catalogue of the known meteorites from Mexico. The first 20 pages are devoted to a description of the types of meteorites and their classification. The remaining part of the book is a state by state catalogue of the known meteorites. The book ends with an extensive bibliography. No copies of this work are recorded as sold at auction or through dealers in 70 years. The book is quite rare.
