Item Description


You are bidding on a limited edition coofee table book America's Underwater Treasures numbered and signed by Jean-Michel Cousteau

America?s Underwater Treasures is a Special Limited Edition of 1000 books uniquely and beautifully presented in a blue linen book slipcase, hardbound with dust jacket and hand-signed and numbered by Jean-Michel Cousteau

This grand adventure on the high seas and shore is an intelligent inquiry into the status of the health of the ocean.  A visual poetic reading experience, America's Underwater Treasures is a great armchair adventure with insights into the working team of a Jean-Michel Cousteau expedition, enlightened by his philosophy and time-honored life-long experience.

Throughout the 300 pages of stunning photography with behind the scenes personal stories from members of the Ocean Adventures Expedition Team including their conservation concerns & success stories. With engaging text and first-person narrative, the authors guide us through the underwater delights and challenges of the American Thirteen National Marine Sanctuaries and the Hawaiian Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, which also are the subject of the PBS television series Jean-Michel Cousteau?s Ocean Adventures.

The importance of this book, however, is not limited to these specific areas; as a microcosm of the world ocean, these seascapes and the work being done in them represent hope for the global ocean.

Author Jean-Michel Cousteau
