Only 2 For Sale; rare Marion Smith/Will Chamberlin book

Postby tagkycaver » Jun 27, 2015 10:32 am

For sale are 2 original copies of "The Exploration and Survey of McBride Cave, Jackson County, Alabama" (1983) by Marion O. Smith and G. Will Chamberlin. This rare
8 1/2 x 11 booklet is only 12 pages long, but contains the complete, detailed history of the exploration of one of the true classic multidrop caves in America, and includes the complete official fold-out map by Ricky Buice showing plan and vertical profile, as well as action photos of Marion Smith, Will Chamberlin, Gerald Moni, Ron Lewis and Jim Coffroth. Both copies are in very good condition, but have a few very minor creases light discolorations on the covers, and a little rust on the binding staples. A must for any "complete" library of TAG caves.

Only $10 each, free shipping!

I was lucky enough to get Will's copy along with a few original 8x10 photos that were taken by Marion that were published in the book when Will died.
