From the cover: Faked, of course. All done in a tank. How often have you murmured those words to yourself as you watched in a cinema some drama being unfolded on the bed of the ocean. Once in a while you may have been right, but in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred those photographs were actually taken on the bed of the ocean by John Craig and his crew of under-water cameramen.
Good in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed, faded at the spine. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted. Gift inscription to the first blank alongside a small pasted on gift-plate. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.
