Description

Memoirs of a Speleologist

Memoirs of a Speleologist: The Adventurous Life of a Famous French Cave Explorer by Robert de Joly is a hardback published as an attractive translation from the French by Peter Kurz; the printing was in the USA, but this edition has been overprinted with a sticker showing that it was sold in the UK under The Mendip Press imprint.

De Joly was French and the creator of the Speleo-Club de France, among many other things during his illustrious life. In essence, this is a collection of stories that include how he always carried a pistol while caving as he did not know what he might meet down there, and once had to shoot a mad dog at the bottom of a pitch. In any event, his text is 'entertainment' in its best sense, tales told with a sense of humour often involving some serious explorations. Well worth a read.

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.
