We report the results of a multi-year spectroscopic and photometric survey of novae in M31 that resulted in a total of 53 spectra of 48 individual nova candidates. Two of these, M31N 1995-11e and M31N 2007-11g, were revealed to be long-period Mira variables, not novae. These data double the number of spectra extant for novae in M31 through the end of 2009 and bring to 91 the number of M31 novae with known spectroscopic classifications. We find that 75 novae (82%) are confirmed or likely members… 
ON THE SPECTROSCOPIC CLASSES OF NOVAE IN M33
We report the initial results from an ongoing multi-year spectroscopic survey of novae in M33. The survey resulted in the spectroscopic classification of six novae (M33N 2006-09a, 2007-09a, 2009-01a,
Photometric and Spectroscopic Properties of Novae in the Large Magellanic Cloud
The photometric and spectroscopic properties of the 43 known LMC nova candidates are summarized and reviewed. Of these, photometric data sufficient to establish decline rates are available for 29
ON THE PROGENITORS OF LOCAL GROUP NOVAE. I. THE M31 CATALOG
We report the results of a survey of M31 novae in quiescence. This is the first catalog of extragalactic systems in quiescence to be published, and contains data for 38 spectroscopically confirmed
On the progenitors of local group novae. II. the red giant nova rate of M31
In our preceding paper, Liverpool Telescope data of M31 novae in eruption were used to facilitate a search for their progenitor systems within archival Hubble Space Telescope data, with the aim of
The Nova Rate in M94 (NGC 4736)
A multi-epoch Hα survey of the early-type spiral galaxy M94 (NGC 4736) has been completed as part of a program to establish the galaxy's nova rate. A total of four nova candidates were discovered in
CLASSICAL NOVAE IN ANDROMEDA: LIGHT CURVES FROM THE PALOMAR TRANSIENT FACTORY AND GALEX
We present optical light curves of 29 novae in M31 during the 2009 and 2010 observing seasons of the Palomar Transient Factory (PTF). The dynamic and rapid cadences in PTF monitoring of M31, from one
Observations of galactic and extragalactic novae
The recent GAIA DR2 measurements of distances to galactic novae have allowed to re-analyse some properties of nova populations in the Milky Way and in external galaxies on new and more solid
NOVAE IN GLOBULAR CLUSTERS
We present the first light-curve analysis of Population II novae that appeared in M31 globular clusters. Our light-curve models, based on the optically thick wind theory, reproduce well both the
A LUMINOUS RED NOVA IN M31 AND ITS PROGENITOR SYSTEM
We present observations of M31LRN 2015 (MASTER OT J004207.99+405501.1), discovered in M31 in 2015 January, and identified as a rare and enigmatic luminous red nova (LRN). Spectroscopic and

Context. Classical novae are quite frequent in M 31. However, very few spectra of M 31 novae have been studied to date, especially during the early decline phase. Aims. Our aim is to study the
THE SPECTRA OF TWO NOVAE IN THE ANDROMEDA NEBULA
The novae in M 31, with the outstanding exception of S Andromedae (1885), probably represent a group of objects comparable with the normal novae observed in the galactic system. The comparison is
