Description

Yorkshire Speleological Association Journal Index

The Yorkshire Speleological Association produced only two issues of its nevertheless important journal, in 1907 and 1909 (plus three loose sheets about 1910). Because the pages were typed using a stack of about a dozen sheets of paper with carbon paper between, the quality of the original is directly proportional to the distance from the typewriter keys. And time and paper and ... Copies are therefore rare and generally may be unreadable.

Chris assembled the best photocopy he could using different sources, then 'repaired' text that was missing before indexing the issues. The result was a short but detailed index that, in 1995, was published as a card-covered booklet. The introduction provides information about the YSA and the journals.

The index is in three parts, for authors, subjects and surveys and the final copies are still available for sale, as issued in 1995. However, owing to the scarcity of originals and the interest shown in the index alongside these, a newly-laid-out pdf of the index has been made available for free download, along with pdf files of the original journals. More information on these appears here. The downloads make this original publication (in b&w) redundant to some extent, so when the final copies are gone there is no intention of reprinting these - they are available as collectors' items in the meantime.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL DESCENT SUBSCRIBERS OUTSIDE THE UK

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.

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, 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.
