The fifth edition of this widely acclaimed work has been reissued as part of the Oxford Classic Texts series. The book includes a clear exposition of general topics concerning the structures of solids, and a systematic description of the structural chemistry of elements and their compounds.
The book is divided into two parts. Part I deals with a number of general topics, including the properties of polyhedra, the nature and symmetry of repeating patterns, and the ways in which spheres, of the same or different sizes, can be packed together. In Part II the structural chemistry of the elements is described systematically, arranged according to the groups of the Periodic Table.

The book serves as a very useful up-to-date reference book and should be welcomed by both chemists and solid-state physicists working with inorganic materials. (Philosophical Magazine B,)
Since 1945 when the first edition appeared, it has been the principal source of structural information for students, teachers, and authors of inorganic texts, and I can think of no current chemistry text in English that has given a longer period of continuous service. (Alan Pidcock, Synthesis and Reactivity in Inorganic and Metal-Organic Chemistry)
[Wells's Structural Inorganic Chemistry] seeks to present the structural basis of inorganic chemistry for chemists, and it succeeds. It is a little bit like an Irish stew - everything is included, cooked in a special and uniform way, making up a rather fine and nourishing dish. (Jon McCleverty, Nature)
There is probably little need to recommend this book, since all those familiar with the earlier editions will wish to have it available to them, but it is, in fact, wholly excellent. (Colin Eaborn, Journal of Organometallic Chemistry)
For the clear and concise exposition of such a wide variety of material this is a book to be highly recommended. (M. Calligaris, Acta Crystallographica)
This classic in its field continues to be a thorough, advanced work, clearly written and providing a valuable lead-in to the literature on structural matters of all kinds in inorganic chemistry. (R. H. Prince, Chemistry and Industry)
Alexander Frank Wells was formerly Professor of Chemistry at the University of Connecticut, USA.
