Not a real ‘diving’ book but ‘close’, it is a manual from a submarine explaining all about its torpedoes.   The manual underwent several revisions and is in fact a binder with pages which can be added or removed. I went through it to see how complete it is and found the pages 164 to 181 to be missing, but afer that it numbers on to 276 pages. According to the index the missing pages explained about ‘Disassembly, Overhaul, Assembly and tests of a Valve group and superheater. Hundreds of very nice illustrations, several full color. One multi page fold out picture of a torpedo has been repaired with tape, see photographs. If this was on diving helmets it would have been a fantastic manual :o) Price 275 euro plus shipping
