4 ANDERSON, Frank J. Submarines, Diving and the Underwater World : A Bibliography
Archon, 1975, 
ANDERSON, Frank J., (comp.). Submarines, Diving, and the Underwater World: A Bibliography. Compiled and Edited by Frank J. Anderson. (Hamden, Connecticut) : Archon Books, 1975. First Edition. Pp (4),v-ix,(1),1-238. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “In one alphabetical sequence, over 1,500 titles (plus authors and cross-references) cover historical works, technicaltreatises, biographical memoirs, official documents, bibliographies, and f iction for all tastes and ages. One- half the entries deal with submarines in war, but as naval combat is no longer their only use, the submarine and diving in scientific research, engineering and oceanology, and recreation account for the other titles referenced. Fundamental information on topics as diverse as ocean currents, salinity, bottom mapping; underwater archaeology; physiological and psychological experimentation; drilling, mining, and construction; underwater photography, marine life, and scuba diving as a sport; are integrated here with the victories, rescues, and disasters of battle, and the salvage efforts made in times of war and peace alike.” - from the dj. “Works regarding the technological advances made in man's 'mastery' of the sea are listed; such as accounts of bathyscaphe probes, underwater drift voyages, Sealab living, and deep diving with the use of the aqualung. The ocean's contempt of man's 'mastery' is also recorded in the literature of submarine disasters and the subsequent rescue and salvage attempts. The books in this list range over a period of more than 400 years of man's attempts to use the underwater world for his own ends. […] The books listed arewritten in various languages with English-language books predominating. Th ere is a good representation of books in French and in German. A few titlesin Russian and Spanish are included, along with a token representation of Dutch, Hungarian, Japanese, Scandinavian, and Turkish language books.” – p.vii. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 70.00
