Proceedings of the University of Bristol Spelaeological Society

We have various editions of UBSS Proceedings available, all in very good or near mint condition (if you require a specific description, please ask); many have a fold-out survey and all contain superb peer-reviewed papers. This is one of the highest quality journals published in the UK, with three issues making one volume. Some early copies are scarce and are priced accordingly (condition is also taken into account).

The following table indicates available issues, the year (copies are published for the preceding year, which is the one listed, not the date of publication), and the presence of any fold-out or loose surveys supplied with that issue. Other surveys (of which there are many) appear on normal printed pages. Finally, the price for that issue (including postage to the UK) is in the last column. Overall, this can be an excellent way to obtain an otherwise hard-to-locate survey and a realistic price.

If you require a different post destination than the UK please contact us for a specific quote covering the additional postage. It is only possible to order copies for UK delivery on this page.

To place an order, note the Volume and Issue number and price, eg. Vol 13 (1), and use the drop-down box to select the correct payment then place the order. During checkout (or in a separate e-mail) please state which issue(s) the payment is for.

In general, we have one only (sometimes two) copies of these issues available; if we have more than one, the best quality copy will be supplied to fill any order.

Non-UK orders

If stock is available for all post destinations, selecting any set of options will allow you to place your order immediately.

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, selecting your options may not allow an order to be placed, even though stock is available. 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.


We regret that due to the volatility of Royal Mail postage charges, we have been forced to remove the option for two-year subscriptions. We have also been forced to remove the option for economy mail to the EU, given indications that Royal Mail intends to remove this service.

All international mail is now being despatched in paper wrapping using Royal Mail customs and address labels mandated by them. We also regret this means we can no longer indicate the last issue of your subscription on the mailing sheet or supply a reminder to renew with the final edition. Please track your own subscription ending or check with us at any time. Subscriptions begun since September 2021 have a comment added in your account (under the tab for the order) which records the final issue to be supplied.


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, it is charged within the EU and the VAT (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

Ideally, the VAT should be paid at the point of posting, but doing so requires registration with an agent to handle the payments, and this is incredibly expensive and not financially viable. To be clear, all small publishers in the UK are in the same position and we are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties paid.

Ordering any item from Wild Places, including a Descent subscription, requires that you accept responsibility of paying the VAT 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. We will maintain a link from the left-hand column on the home page with the latest updates. If you are an existing subscriber to Descent and have not replied yet to our enquiries concerning your deliveries, please make contact.

NOTE: Subscribers in Norway or Switzerland (which are outside the EU) should place your order on the Subscription International page or contact us first.
