Description

Yorkshire Speleological Association Journal Index

The Yorkshire Speleological Association produced only two issues of its nevertheless important journal, in 1907 and 1909 (plus three loose sheets about 1910). Because the pages were typed using a stack of about a dozen sheets of paper with carbon paper between, the quality of the original is directly proportional to the distance from the typewriter keys. And time and paper and ... Copies are therefore rare and generally may be unreadable.

Chris assembled the best photocopy he could using different sources, then 'repaired' text that was missing before indexing the issues. The result was a short but detailed index that, in 1995, was published as a card-covered booklet. The introduction provides information about the YSA and the journals.

The index is in three parts, for authors, subjects and surveys and the final copies are still available for sale, as issued in 1995. However, owing to the scarcity of originals and the interest shown in the index alongside these, a newly-laid-out pdf of the index has been made available for free download, along with pdf files of the original journals. More information on these appears here. The downloads make this original publication (in b&w) redundant to some extent, so when the final copies are gone there is no intention of reprinting these - they are available as collectors' items in the meantime.
