The catalogue lists coordinates, apparent magnitudes, orbital parameters, stellar parameters of the components and other characteristc properties of 318 cataclysmic binaries, 47 low-mass X-ray binaries and 49 related objects with known or suspected orbital periods together with a comprehensive selection of the relevant recent literature. In addition the catalogue contains a list of references to published finding charts for 394 of the 414 objects. A cross-reference list of alias object designations concludes the catalogue. Literature published before 30 June 1997 has, as far as possible, been taken into account.
