Description

Subterranea

Enjoy a free double-sided, laminated, caving-themed bookmark with your order

Subterranea by Chris Fitch (with Matthew Young, who produced the many fine maps) was reviewed in Descent (276). This is an extremely attractive book subtitled 'Discovering the earth's extraordinary hidden depths'; the back cover carries a quote by Nick Crane (BBC presenter): 'An original and timely odyssey into our mysterious underworld. Thrilling proof that science and imagination share the ground beneath our feet.'

The contents are in four parts: Creation (cave paintings and the like), Ancient History (archaeology and early inhabitations of underground places, Modern History (man-made structures) and Today (how the underworld is interacting with us, with such as sinkholes and tunnels). The coverage is varied, the writing engaging, the maps an example of clarity. This is a general interest book of high quality, offered here at a discount.

The one copy available is assigned to UK stock. If you require a different post destination please contact us so that stock may be moved and you can place your order. Where more than one copy is available, the copy in the best condition will be supplied to fill an order.

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.
