Kontizas University of Athens, Laboratory of Astrophysics, Panepistimiopolis, Athens 15783, Greece Royal Observatory, Blackford Hill, Edinburgh EH9 31L, U.K. National Observatory of Athens, Astronomical Institute, Athens 11810, Greece Received January 15, accepted February 9, 1990 Abstract -- A new catalogue of clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud has been constructed from searches of the IIIa-J component of the ESO/SERC Southern Sky Atlas. The catalogue contains coordinate and diameter measurements of 1762 clusters in a 25^deg^ x 25^deg^ area of sky centred on the LMC, but excluding the very crowded 3.5 deg^2^ region around the Bar. The distribution of there clusters appears as two superimposed elliptical systems. The higher density inner system extends over ~ 8^deg^; the lower density outer system can be represented by a 13^deg^ x 10^deg^ disc inclined at 42^deg^ to the line of sight. There are suggestions of two weak "arms" in the latter. Key words: Magellanic Clouds - star clusters.
