Book Description Brandeis, 2003. Hardcover. Condition: Used: Like New. 000-446: INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AUTHOR MICHAEL KALAFATAS on Front Endpaper. Hardcover with Dustjacket. Denim cloth spine and cream boards with gilt spine lettering. 287 pages. No Defects except for a few tiny wrinkles around edges of jacket from shelf. A beautiful, square, tight copy with clean, unmarked pages. Outstanding Gift Quality. The author found a twenty-two-page epic poem WINTER DREAM, written by his grandfather about the suffering during the Greek sponge divers' transition from the ancient technique of naked diving using a bellstone to the deep-sea diving suit, which resulted in many deaths and cases of paralysis. Using the poem as a guide, Kalafatas traces the historical and cultural contours of this uniquely Greek livelihood, and carries the reader from the Dodecanese Islands in the nineteenth century to Constantinople and the Black Sea as well as to contemporary Tarpon Springs, Florida, and Melbourne, Australia--the far-flung outposts of the Greek sponge-diving diaspora. 8 Pages of Rare Black and White Photographs. 5 4 3 2 1 First Edition, First Printing 2003. Published by Brandeis University Press. Seller Inventory # 32581
