Alexander Clark Bullitt. 1985. New introduction by Harold Meloy. 6 engravings, foldout Mammoth Cave map, circa 1845. 134 pp. 5 x 71/2 Rambles in the Mammoth Cave was originally published in 1845. Alexander Clark Bullitt describes the cave as easily accessible, with comfortable local ac- commodations, and as offering safe and pleasurable cave trips for ladies and gentlemen. The book provides beautiful descriptions of the sights in the cave that could be seen by visitors in 1844, and can still be seen by visitors today. It has been a source book for all future guidebooks, and remains a most attractive souvenir for visitors who want to remember their trips into Mammoth Cave. The new introduction by Harold Meloy is based on his many years of histori- cal research on Mammoth Cave. It provides information about the early owners, managers, guides, and visitors to the longest cave in the world. "The physical reproduction of the text is excellent and the binding worthy of the classic this is." ?International Journal of Speleology
