An authoritative synthesis of knowledge of the planet Mercury after the MESSENGER mission, providing topical coverage that is balanced, comprehensive and at a level accessible to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. It is the reference against which future observations of Mercury from Earth or spacecraft will be benchmarked.
