Challenging the Deep, by H Hass

Challenging the Deep, Thirty years of undersea adventure
by Hans Hass

Hans Hass, Austrian marine-biologist and diving pioneer, was known mainly for being among the first scientists to popularise coral reefs, stingrays and sharks. He pioneered the making of documentaries filmed underwater and assisted in the development of an underwater camera and a type of rebreather. He wrote 25 books and received dozens of international awards. This book was designed as a collector’s album with designated numbered places in which to paste the relevant colour images. This copy has all the images in place.
