Hardcover with black boards and pictorial dust jacket, First Edition, 475gms 317 pages, illustrated pictorial endpapers. A lone Great White Shark, driven inshore by freak climatic conditions, began to develop a taste for human flesh, attacking swimmers all along the popular coast between New York and Philadelphia- and even, incredibly, swimming eleven miles inland to devastate a farming community. This was the model for Peter Benchley's bestseller Jaws. Book is in very good condition with very little general wear and tear, page discolouration to page edges.
