RARE! The Tennessee Pit Survey Vols. I & II

Postby tagkycaver » Aug 10, 2013 4:00 pm

At auction is a copy of Ronald L. Zawislak's extremely rare The Tennessee Pit Survey, Volumes I and II. Produced during the heyday of Tennessee pit exploration, these guidebooks provide explicit descriptions, maps, directions, rigging requirements, photos and more of 29 classic Tennessee pits, including Conley Hole, Ferris Pit, South Pittsburg Pit, Thunderhole, The Gouffre and all the other similar great historic pits in the state, along with interesting narratives, photographic tips, and weather considerations for visitation. 74 pages total.

The original series was apparently produced entirely by b&w photocopying; these copies are in absolutely excellent condition, mounted in two office binders.

Bidding for the pair will start at $25, all subsequent bids must be in at least $5 increments. I pay postage.

The auction will run from 4pm, August 10, 2013 until 8pm August 18, 2013. Good luck and happy bidding.

What pits does this have that are not in Caves and Caving in Tag? BTW used CCT to go to Guy's Cave last week; it was a hurricane! Love the book.

I think the only ones that are in both are South Pittsburg Pit and the upper portion of Solution RIft (before lower section was discovered.) And Martin Springs High Hole and Honeycutt Pit, if they are in CCT.

I'll sell mine for the same price, $60, if anybody is interested.

I think a lot of these old publications only had 30 or 40 copies printed.

You can imagine how few survive 50 years later !!!
