Description
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.

DirDirect is a world-leading online dive shop run by Underwater Explorers based in Portland, Dorset, UK. Underwater Explorers is a dive centre with a striking difference. It was born out of the concept of "Hogarthian" diving, safe and streamlined equipment configuration, using the most robust products available for recreational and technical diving -- but at the same time, keeping it simple. It is based on the concept of "less is more" in diving and acts as an equipment outlet, training facility and source of sound advice.

Thank you for the excellent service and reasonable prices! I will highly recommend your store to my friends.
