1863 The great caverns of Kentucky

1863.  Bailey, Gilbert Stephen. 1863.  The great caverns of Kentucky: Diamond cave, Mammoth cave, Hundred dome cave.  Published – Chicago:  Church and Goodman, illus: b&w: maps; 63 pages.   https://archive.org/details/greatcavernsofke00bail

I came across a book for sale on eBay tonight that had been published in 1863.   The price is quite a bit out of my league, but a pdf of the document can be downloaded from http://www.archive.org at the link above.

Why I am posting this is because even though it is in archive.org my previous searches had not found it.  I wonder why not?  I guess I just accidentally skipped over it. 

It is still just cool to find a new book on the cave after all this time.

About Edward Forrest Frank

My name is Edward Frank. By training I am a geologist with published research on caves found in the United States, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. I am the webmaster, BBS administrator, and run the Facebook Page for the Native Tree Society and am involved with tree research with the group. I am the author, or coauthor, of a number of tree related articles and publications available for download from the NTS website and NTS BBS. I edit the monthly magazine for the group - eNTS Magazine. I write science fiction and fantasy stories reflecting a lifelong love of the genres. Most recently I published a fantasy role playing game Knarf 4, available through Amazon Kindle. I have an extensive science fiction and fantasy library and have long enjoyed table top role-playing games. Not satisfied with commercially available games, I started creating my own game variations in the mid 1980's. Knarf 4 is latest version best version of those games. I also write non-fiction. I currently am working on a book on "The Old-Growth Forests of Cook Forest State Park, PA" targeting older children and teens. I am suave, sophisticated, funny, kind, considerate, thoughtful, brilliant, devilishly handsome, and above all modest.
