International Tables for X-Ray Crystallography. Vol. 1 Symmetry Groups. Vol. II Mathematical Tables. Vol. III Physical and Chemical Tables.
Published for the International Union of Crystallography by the Kynoch Press, Birmingham. 1952 - 1962. 4to., 3 volumes in original cloth lettered in gilt on spines and upper boards. Ink name in vol.1 A very good set. From a contemporary book review by Linus Pauling, "During the years since 1935 X-ray crystallographers have made much use of the International Tables for the Determination of Crystal Structures, prepared through the informal cooperation of scientists in several countries, and initiated at a conference in Zurich in 1929. These tables are now being revised, under the supervision of the Editorial Committee of the International Union of Crystallography (M.J. Buerger, C.H. MacGillavry, N.F.M. Henry, J.S. Kasper, and K. Lonsdale (Chairman). The first volume, on symmetry groups has appeared; it is beautifully printed on fine paper and has an interesting odor (an unusual feature) [not now apparent, sadly]. It will be followed by a volume of mathematical tables and a volume of physical and chemical tables. The book contains detailed descriptions of the one-dimensional, two-dimensional, and three-dimensional lattices, the two-dimensional and three-dimensional point groups, and the two-dimensional and three-dimensional space groups, in a form designed to be of the greatest usefulness to X-ray crystallographers. It is hard to find points of criticism of the volume...My co-workers and I have been strikingly unsuccessful in the search for errors. I feel a sense of personal indebtedness, which I am sure is felt by all of my fellow X-ray crystallographers, to the Editors of this beautiful and useful volume and to the members of the Editorial Committee of the the International Union of Crystallography and the other workers who contributed in one way or another in thr preparation of the new International Tables."
