The Descent Caver's Handbook 1994
The Descent Caver's Handbook was released in its final version as a small ring-bound, looseleaf volume published by Ambit (at the time the owner of Descent) in conjunction with the National Caving Association in September 1994. It was packed with data and produced in a format that permitted updates so that cavers could switch pages for a more recent one, or add a new section. Information covers the caving clubs and associations of the time, making this a superb historical document.
This single example is almost as new, other than the first page holes being damaged. If you require this posting outside the UK, please contact us and we can move the stock so that it can be ordered online. See the Data tab for more information.

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 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.
