EDOUARD-ALFRED MARTEL, EXPLORATEUR DU MONDE SOUTERRAIN
The Gouffre de Padirac and Éditions de la Table Ronde come together to republish the biography of Edouard-Alfred Martel, the founder of modern speleology, by Norbert Casteret, speleologist and writer.
Published in 1943 by Gallimard, the biography was written by Norbert Casteret, a great French speleologist and a disciple of Edouard-Alfred Martel. The work covers the exploits of that genius discoverer, to whom we owe the discovery of the Gouffre de Padirac and several other cavities in France and abroad. The biography reads like a Jules Verne novel, and will set many of you dreaming!
