Another nail in the bookseller's coffin.

in this case it is not an illegal download but a legal one, It has been authorized by the wife of Haroun Tazieff under strict conditions as you can read in the book. So not really a nail on the booksellers coffin. The book itself is almost not available anymore so to get the book available for the younger generations of cavers this is good action (imho)

From one of the first pages of the book:

"Ce livre est reproduit avec l’autorisation gracieuse de Madame France TAZIEFF,
épouse de Haroun TAZIEFF.
Aux termes de cette autorisation, Madame France TAZIEFF donne à l’Association
pour la Recherche Spéléologique Internationale de la Pierre-Saint-Martin
(ARSIP) « l’autorisation exclusive de diffuser la reproduction numérique de l’ouvrage
sur son site internet, à condition que la consultation et l’impression du
livre soient gratuites. »
Toute mise en ligne sur un autre site que celui de L’ARSIP, toute exploitation
commerciale, toute autre forme de diffusion de ce document sont donc strictements
interdits. En revanche, la consultation et l’impression à titre privé sont
autorisés.
Les responsables de sites souhaitant faire connaître ce livre voudront bien
indiquer un lien pointant vers le fichier sur le site de l’ARSIP, et non héberger le
fichier directement."

There was an English translation. It's a sad story, but not a great book, in my opionion.
