International Tables: all Editions and Editors


A brief publication history of International Tables

The International Tables started in 1935 with the first series, comprising two volumes, under the title Internationale Tabellen zur Bestimmung von Kristallstrukturen. The second series consisted of four volumes and was published between 1952 and 1974 with the title International Tables for X-ray Crystallography. The present third series, International Tables for Crystallography, started in 1983 with the publication of Volume A, followed in 1992 by Volume C, in 1993 by Volume B, in 2001 by Volume F, in 2002 by Volume E, in 2003 by Volume D, in 2004 by Volume A1 and in 2005 by Volume G. Comparison of the titles of these series reveals the progressively more general nature of the tables, extending the original topics of symmetry and X-ray structure determination towards incorporation of electron and neutron diffraction techniques, as well as fundamentals of crystallography and physical and chemical crystal data. In 1985, a Brief Teaching Edition of Volume A was published.
