Descent (111), April 1993
To Cross a Red Lake
In September 1992 the China Caves Project turned its attention to Xingwen County in southern Sichuan, an area recced the previous year. Two massive dolines with huge fossil entrances were found, plus a major rising and a showcave with a car park for twenty coaches in its entrance. Pam Fogg reports the outcome of this latest Chinese expedition.
As Luck Would Have It
Following a short dig, the discovery of a new cave in South Wales has been announced over a year after it was first entered. Toby Stewart tells of the discovery of Ogof Nant Rhin, which bears some rather ominous alternative names (Cave of the Cold Stream, Cave of the Hidden Stream, Ghastly Entrance Cave ...).
The Blight of the Bumble Bee
There’s more discoveries with a breakthrough in Cardno Adit’s Last Stand Choke.
The Reopening of Pen Park Hole
Pen Park Hole near Bristol – a cave with a long history – has been reopened.
The Descent Caption Competition
It’s time for a new competition to begin, with a Warmbac wetsuit on offer as a prize.
Viewpoint: The Porth Phenomenon
An article concerning the fatalities that have occurred at Port yr Ogof since 1957 appeared in Descent (109). Suggestions concerning the best course of action to avoid future problems have since appeared, including several letters and reports. Here, Viewpoint includes two such letters by Jim Eyre and Tony Knibbs, which look at the subject in rather different ways.

Second-hand copies of Descent
With such a wealth of information contained in the pages of Descent, out-of-print editions have become much sought after. To help collectors and researchers, where possible second-hand copies are available to supplement the back issues in stock.
Availability of these varies a great deal. Some early and a few later editions are very scarce. Prices vary widely, according both to scarcity and condition – to a collector, creases or a stamped imprint would affect an issue's desirability, while clubs may only wish to have a 'reading copy' to place in the library. In short, expect prices higher than those for back issues – especially for copies in good condition – although sometimes a second-hand copy may be damaged and thus be cheaper than a back issue.
Contents lists of the main articles may be found by looking at individual issues.
Please note that second-hand stocks can and do change rapidly. Different copies of the same issue may be available at differing prices, depending on condition, so use a search to uncover any others. Also note that not all the second-hand stock of Descent is online: if you are looking for a copy in a different conditions, or one that is not online, please contact us to enquire.
If stock is available for all post destinations, selecting any set of options will allow you to place your order immediately.
If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, selecting your options may not allow an order to be placed, even though stock is available. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.
