Looking for Barr's 1961 Caves of Tennessee

Postby cavercrane97 » Jun 25, 2012 8:44 am

Does anybody know where I can buy Barr's 1961 book on Tennessee caves. Looked for it and can't find it anywhere. I love cave books and this would be a great addition to my collection. Thanks in advance.

I checked the NSS bookstore online and it says Barr's book is temporarily out of stock. You may want to call or email the bookstore to ask them
when or if they expect to have more copies of Caves of Tennessee available.

I think I actually saw it in a local library one time, but I can't remember if you could check it out or if you had to read it there.

Amazon has copies of it, but the current price is over $100.

I have a mint hard-cover copy of Barr which I will set as a set with a mint hard-cover copy of Matthews "Desriptions of Tennessee Caves" for $300. Hard-covers of both are almost impossible to find. reply if you want them.

Are you still looking? I have a mint copy but no idea what I paid for it 'way back then. Postal weight is slightly under 3 lbs.


Update: Sold . . . pending receipt of $$ and Postal Address for delivery!
