The Spur Book of Caving

The Spur Book of Caving is one of the Spurbook Venture Guides, being an introductory guide to the sport and providing the basic knowledge to start caving (for the time, the late 1970s). It also claims to offer instructional advice for more experienced cavers, including 'the points which every caver must remember - all the time.' You can learn how to crawl, climb and tie knots, and much more. Today, this is a basic guide, but at the time was suited to the growing number of people showing an interest in the outdoors. A classic collector's item.
