I will chuck numbers 2 & 3 in, free of charge to the winning bidder

(Number 2 has a South Yorkshire Caving Club sticker on the front but apart from that its fine)

Well done Mark.

Out of interest how much do folk think a No 1 is worth?  I don't have one by the way, but do know from a couple of collectors that the first magazine still evades their sets.

About 20 years ago one of my customers had a No 1 for sale for ?25.00, but he refused to sell it to me as I would "Sell it as a profit".  Needless to say I completed my set with a complimentary photocopy.

I certainly know people who have said they would pay quite a bit for a Descent #1... It would be very exciting to see what one went for on eBay... I wouldn't be surprised if it managed ?200-300.

I need Descent Nos 1 to 4 to complete a run for a caving club.  Photocopies are OK.  Can anybody help?
 
Hi All

Thanks for all the interest in this. It is much appreciated. Though the reserve was sadly not met, the winner bidder has kindly offered to make a larger donation in aid of Ghar Parau  :clap: ;)

Mark, thanks very much for the kind offer to include issues 2 and 3. I'm sure the winning bidder will be very grateful.

Ill drop you a PM

Thanks again

I guess that there'd be copyright issues etc. around reproduction of whole publications.  I think there is a clause in copyright laws about selective reproduction of small extracts for quotes, or reviews, and fair use, etc. but not the whole thing and almost certainly probably not reproducing for resale.
Maybe the original publishers could advise?
