Planetary Geology by Nicholas Short, Moon, Mars, Meteorites



This is a classic textbook in the field of Planetary Geology by Nicholas Short (Prentice Hall, Hardcover, 1975, 364pp). 

Nicholas Short - Earth Survey Applications Division, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt Maryland. 

This book is profusely illustrated with charts, diagrams and tables. There are several high-quality lunar surface maps (I have snapped photos of a few). This book covers the geology of the Moon, Mars, and other bodies in the solar system, There is a chapter on meteorites that covers the various petrologic types, chondrules, and their chemistry. Although this book is dated, much of the subject matter is still valid and it is a great reference work for the geology of our solar system. 

This book is an ex-library edition (University of Waterloo) and has the usual markings for such a text. The cover is worn with scuff marks and some scratches. The binding is tight and no pages are loose or missing. While the cover is not pretty, this book is a good reading or reference copy. Other than the cover, the rest of the text is in excellent condition for it's age.

Refer to the photos. You are purchasing the book shown. Note, due to the size and bulk of this book, it may be expensive to ship outside of the USA.
