Here are some duplicate issues of The Journal of Spelean History that I have accumulated over the years. All are in perfect, like-new condition.
Volume 18, Nos. 3 & 4 (July-December, 1984). Contains an article by Charles Clark on the first trip to the bottom of Bull Cave, the deepest cave in Tennessee. Other topics are Hellhole, West Virginia, Natural Well, Alabama, Jingle Hole, Tennessee, Frenchman Knob, Kentucky, Conley Hole, Tennessee, Red Barrell Pit, Tennessee, The Devil's Sinkhole, Texas, and Mystery Falls, Tennessee. As you can see, this is a Pit Oriented issue. 71 pages long !!!
Volume 23, Nos. 1 & 2 (Jan. - June, 1989). This issue is labeled "Special Show Cave Issue" and consists of one article by Gary K. Soule identifying all the known Show Caves in the United States. Very good reference item. 34 pages long.
Volume 30, No. 4 (October-December, 1996). Great article by Joe Douglas on the use of caves as Fallout Shelters during the Cold War, an article by me on Shelah Waters of Cumberland Caverns fame, and an article on Howe Caverns in New York. 22 pages long.
Volume 40, No. 1 (January-June, 2006). Great listing of US Post Office with cave names, an article of Nickajack Cave, Tennessee, Albert Tissandier's Drawings of Mammoth Cave, and The Carver's Cave of Minneapolis. 36 pages long.
These make for fantastic reading and are great reference material. I'll start this auction at $8, which is only $2 per copy, plus $2 postage. All bids must be in even dollar amounts. No International Shipments. Auction starts today, Sunday May 13 and ends Sunday May 27 at 5:00 pm.
Good luck !!!
