Cavers Bookshelf

by Martin Webster.

CAVING by James Lovelock, published by Batsford at 25/-. 144 pp and photographs.

Yet another in the line of the nondescript books, attempting to put the novice caver on the best lines of safe caving.  In this capacity it is reasonable, although not outstanding.  It has some interesting suggestions and quire useful advice.  If you were to take all the equipment caving that Mr Lovelock suggests, however, at least a team of donkeys would be required!

Many of the ‘tackle’ illustrations have appeared in previous publications and one feels that the photographs could have been selected a little more carefully.
