I have the original first edition of this book. An excellent source of information for tourists, which covers the caves that can be visited in Europe. It purposely does not cover caves such as Chauvet which are off limits. If you do plan to visit some of these caves, take this book with you.

Great help for our self-guided tour of caves in France. Well worth the investment; found nothing else like it.

This is a very informative book. It gives many details on the caves of France and Northern Spain. I had toured 2 of the caves, which are included in the book. I think there is some dispute as to the time in which the cave art was done. But, it is ongoing and no one really has a definitive answer yet.
Very interesting book.

Good book, but I was surprised that Chauvet is not included. The edition I have is from 2012, so there are no excuses. Chauvet is not even shown on the map of all the caves in France. If there are separate sections for lesser known caves, why not the oldest and best preserved cave? I realize that basically nobody can visit Chauvet, but you also cannot visit Lascaux or Altamira. Eventually there will be a Chauvet replica near the cave, after the litigation. At least place in on the map. I believe that a more accurate title would be: Cave Art: A VISITOR'S Guide to the Decorated Caves of Europe.
