ATLAS OF PECULIAR GALAXIES, Halton Arp (1996) - as far as I can tell, most of the merger targets are peculiar galaxies (per Arp's definition), and appear in his atlas.

It's quite a treat to skim this atlas; the images were taken by different telescopes (though mostly the Palomar 200"), under different conditions (though seeing was mostly good to very good), using different filters, and photographic plates ... in this the Atlas is quite unlike SDSS, where great effort was made to standardize everything.

I was just looking back through past OOTD's and have found a couple more for the mergers board   :)

Antennae Galaxies mentioned on Sixty Symbols - Tides. Worth watching the whole thing, skip to 5:25 for Antennae info. here

NGC 2207 and IC 2163 Quote from Wikipedia Merging galaxies

"NGC 2207 is in the process of colliding and merging with IC 2163. But unlike the Antennae or the Mice Galaxies, they are still two separate spiral galaxies. They are only in the first step of colliding and merging. Soon they will collide, probably looking a bit more like the Mice Galaxies. In about a billion years time they are expected to merge and become an elliptical galaxy."

"The CFHTLS Deep Catalog of Interacting Galaxies I. Merger Rate Evolution to z=1.2"
Authors: Carrie R. Bridge, Raymond G. Carlberg, Mark Sullivan
(Submitted on 15 Jan 2010)
Quote
We developed a new classification scheme to identify major galaxy-galaxy mergers based on the presence of tidal tails and bridges. These morphological features are signposts of recent and ongoing merger activity. Through the visual classification of all galaxies, down to i_vega<22.2 (~27,000 galaxies) over 2 square degrees, we have compiled the CFHTLS Deep Catalog of Interacting Galaxies, with ~1600 merging galaxies.
