An Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals, by William Alexander Deer, Robert Andrew Howie, and Jack Zussman, is a book often considered the "bible" of mineralogy.

An Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals, by William Alexander Deer, Robert Andrew Howie, and Jack Zussman, is a book often considered the "bible" of mineralogy. It covers hundreds of minerals, with details of their structure, chemistry, optical and physical properties, distinguishing features, and paragenesis. Entries range from one or two pages for obscure minerals, to dozens of pages for important ones like feldspars.

In 1962 Deer, Howie and Zussman produced the five volumes of Rock-forming Minerals. BOOK As to the practical aspects, the work by the three authors was done at a very high level. The books attracted considerable attention and were well received; they were sold out quickly despite annual reprinting. The books were translated into Russian and were widely distributed in the Soviet Union. First of all the rational construction and distribution of the material among the five volumes should be mentioned.

one of the best references for anyone doing petrology work with a microscope.

Did not look close enough and did not realize the book was a library book with the card slot and markings on it. I also did not realize it was the sixth imprinting. I was hoping for the second or third imprinting. Book arrived rapidly, earlier than expected. Excellent shape. Still very good and serves my purposes.

Still the classic mineralogical text.
This is one of those books every professional geologist should buy. It is a great reference to mineralogy and is organized very well.
