- 20. Crystals -
A Handbook for School Teachers.
*Elizabeth A. Wood*. This classic text is now available as a Web resource in several different language translations. - 21. Crystal
Packing.
*Angelo Gavezzotti and Howard Flack*. Includes illustrations of the two-dimensional space groups - 22. Matrices,
Mappings and Crystallographic Symmetry.
*Hans Wondratschek*

The first set of ten pamphlets, published in 1981, and this second set of nine represent a sample of the various levels and approaches and it is hoped that they will stimulate many more people to contribute to this scheme. It does not take very long to write a short pamphlet, but its value to someone teaching a topic for the first time can be very great.

Each pamphlet is prefaced by a statement of aims, level, necessary background, etc.
