Books published by SSS.

The Sydney Speleological Society (SSS) has achieved a distinguished publishing record since being founded in March 1954. It urges its members to publish articles on caves and cave areas, the results of trips, fieldwork and documentation. These range from short monographs to full length books. The Society is a non-profit organisation and all monies from its publications are used to finance other books of interest to cavers and speleologists. The Sydney Speleological Society seeks to extend its list of caving publications and will consider manuscripts from anyone who wishes to submit them to the Society, whether or not they are members of The Sydney Speleological Society. The subject matter must be of speleological interest, but there are no criteria on length or format as the Society has several methods of publication and can accommodate almost any style.

ALL of the following publications are FOR SALE (except where noted as Out of print). Note that photocopies of Out of print publications can be arranged.
