Description

Cave References in Scientific American Magazine 1845-1985

Cave References in Scientific American Magazine began life as a search for a reference to early cave photography, mentioned by Ben Hains on his stereo cards. Having found that, a huge number of cave-relevant articles was noted along the way, and hence the indexing began.

Scientific American began publication as a weekly newspaper in New York in 1845, growing to be sold world-wide as a digest of scientific news written for the layman. In 1876 a weekly supplement was added, and later a monthly edition ran alongside these until all were incorporated into the version still published today. This index includes all known references to caves from the first issue to 1985. In particular, the 1800s produced many references of interest to speleohistorians.

This index is in two main parts: the references by author order with a full reference to the issue and a brief note of the relevance, then a subject index. It is larger both physically (A4 rather than A5) than most of the other 'mini-indexes' produced in the same period. This edition is the third: first publication was in 1987, with two following editions with minor updates to the current version of 2004.

STOCK ALLOCATION

Our goods for advertised for sale with postage costs included; selecting the destination other than the UK will alter the price, to take into account the increased carriage charges. 

If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, you will not be able to place this order, even though stock is available. We regret this, but the software has limitations. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.

Please see our FAQs relating to deliveries, and the Delivery page linked from the bottom of each page, before placing your order if time is an important element for your order.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

On 1 July 2021 the EU removed all exemptions for tax and customs duty on low value items posted from the UK to the EU, meaning that although VAT is 0% on books and magazines in the UK, VAT is charged within the EU and the tax (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

We are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties prepaid; as a small company, it is a long way outside our abilities to engage with an agent to do so. All items are therefore mailed as DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid). Ordering any item from Wild Places requires that you accept responsibility for paying the VAT applicable in your country and any other local charges on delivery.

To be clear: Wild Places will NOT cover any charges levied by your country; it is your responsibility to accept these when placing an order. We apologise for the situation, but it is outside our control. Refusal to pay charges upon delivery will not be accepted as a reason for refunding in full any returned items.

NOTE: Norway and Switzerland are outside the EU and orders will be filled as normal.
