In the 1950's and 1960's, many companies were publishing "how-to" scuba manuals. This selection is from US Divers, Healthways, and the Athletic Institute of Chicago. Many were written by some of the biggest names in diving, such as E.R. Cross, Bev Morgan, Gustav Dalla Valle, and Rene Bussoz. The manuals are pocket-size, approximately 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.
