From the reviews:

..." The Editor's goal to provide data that are useful for all
aspects of crystallography as well as text to satisfy the needs of
those interested in the theoretical reasons behind these tables has
led to a fruitful combination of tables for practical use in the
first part and a high-level textbook in the second. To sum up, ITA
is not only the first and the most frequently edited volume in this
series of a new generation of crystallographic references, it sets
standards for the subject of crystallography in general as a hard'
and far-reaching branch of science. Thanks to the availability of
this reference, supported by the IUCr, there is nowadays an
international consensus on key concepts of crystallography. ITA is
a book of symbols relevant for symmetry properties of crystals.
While many other books are using the relevant symbols, ITA delivers
not only the complete listings but also a comprehensive explanation
of the theory behind them and detailed instructions for use. Hence,
it is indispensable for people dealing with the symmetry of
crystals." (P. Paufler Acta Cryst. (2004). A60, 641-642 )

"Since its first appearance in 1983, Volume A of International
Tables for Crystallography (hereafter ITA) has served consumers of
symmetry-group data for about 20 years . ITA is not only the first

generation of crystallographic references, it sets standards for
the subject of crystallography in general . I feel personal
indebtedness to the Editor and to the other authors of this useful
volume and the huge work that has been done." (Peter Paufler, Acta
