An exciting in-depth overview of diving procedures and equipment from ancient breath-hold diving to modern deep diving systems. The photographs were contributed from all over the world and are accompanied by explanatory text written by an international group of authorities who are acknowledged experts in their respective fields. The illustrations present the developmental history of the exploration of the underwater world. A beautiful full-color coffee-table book.
  • It was the only book I could find that addressed deep sea bell diving. Everything else was on subba.Too bad that it is out of print which make it expensive, but worth it.

  • A Pictorial History of Diving provides a lavishly illustrated, brief, but comprehensive review of diving history, from early breath-hold diving and primitive diving bells to modern developments like ROV's and the Newtsuit. Unlike many other books on the subject, it also includes information on underwater habitats and recreational gear. An excellent photo section on early dive helmets rounds out the history and provides some fuel for the imagination. A great coffee table book and serious reader in one volume!
