Descent Magazine's Caving Yearbook

The Caving Yearbook documents contacts and clubs registered for the year 1987-8, as edited by Bruce Bedford. In addition, it includes a series of articles that cover an Alpine-style descent of the Gouffre Berger, an early account of using a computer for cave surveying, abseiling, caving videos and an expedition to the Nullarbor of Australia. This is an interesting piece of caving history even without the readable articles.

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.
