SEAS, MAPS AND MEN

A handsome pictorial study, amplified by a succinct text, of man's struggle to explore and understand the sea from earliest times, when he ventured forth on a simple raft until today when complex machinery lends vital assistance. Four major subdivisions -- Man Against the Sea, Life in the Sea, Man Under the Sea and New Attack on the Sea -- each sumptuously illustrated with maps of the visible ocean and the undersea, photographs, diagrams and paintings, tell the story. An appealing gift item with unique visual appeal, this should attract men and boys of all ages.
