Doubilet, a frequent photographer for National Geographic, proves his mastery of underwater photography yet again in this elegant, coffee table-size collection of almost 200 photographs. Interspersed with brief textual introductions, the images span Doubilet's career (and the world), running the gamut of marine environments and species. The 30 bodies of water covered range from the shores of the Gal pagos Islands to the Red Sea, and the book's 11 sections range from "Beneath the Surface" to "Desert Sea" to "Coral Eden." The book is nothing less than magnificent. Because of its beauty and oversize dimensions, however, it may prove difficult for libraries; it certainly won't work for those with security problems. Highly recommended for all photography collections, especially those including underwater photography, this is also appropriate for libraries at all levels where there is strong interest in marine biology and scuba diving.--Margaret A.
