Description:

Hardcover first edition - First printing. Describes his first encounter with a manta ray and other creatures of the coral reefs of the Red Sea. Haas, born in Austria in 1919, was a pioneer in developing "swim diving" - at a time when diving equipment was bulky and unreliable, Hass managed with just flippers, goggles and lightweight breathing apparatus that allowed him to get close to the undersea action. In 1942, he was the first person to successfully utilize this combination in open water - and he continued doing so over the years (he continued using his oxygen rebreathing equipment even after the development of the safer SCUBA, which uses compressed air) Illustrated with many black and white photographs by the author. Translated from the German by James Cleugh. Glossary. 278 pp. Map endpapers Very good in very good dust jacket (previous owner's name, slight spine slant, price-clipped, some overall edgewear to the dj) LIMITED TIME SALE: All prices shown have been REDUCED by 25% for the ABEBOOKS SALE. Free wrapping on request - go 'green' with reusable fabric or traditional paper. When present djsare protected with archival covers, and books are carefully packed for shipping.
