The First Treasure Divers
The True Story of how two brothers invented the diving helmet and sought sunken treasure and fame. An authentic, real life story, that reads like and adventure thriller.
This is an authentic, real-life story that reads like an adventure-thriller. It follows the lives of two brothers as they struggle to turn their newly-invented diving helmet to advantage, seeking sunken treasure and fame, and how they wrestle with apathetic even hostile authorities for recognition of their invention.

The recorded history of the diving industry has been fundamentally corrupted over the past 150 years. The result is a complete misunderstanding of how it all began. In this book, John Bevan seeks to redress some of these inaccuracies

Who invented the diving helmet? Refer to any encyclopedia or history book and the answer you will find will almost certainly be wrong. The First Treasure Divers reveals the true and fascinating story. It blows away the myths and deliberate misinformation that have crept into the historical record. Thanks to the painstaking research the author has carried out over the past 25 years, the falsehoods are peeled away to unveil the true, definitive account.
