Modern Spearfishing

Publisher:   A.S.Barnes, New York, USA., 1955.  
Enlarged, revised, blue jacket, no ISBN, # but LCC# 55-6648 - (note one edition I have does not have a LCC or ISBN #) also published in Canada but I have never seen a Canadian edition. Name change to  VANE Ivanovic  

Vane also published "LX, memoirs of a Yugoslav" in 1977 published in US by Harcourt, Brace and Jovanovic  (Jovanovic is a fellow Yugoslav) ISBN# 0-15-154797-1.  Vane devotes 4 pages to spear fishing and 4 pages to sharks in this book.  Never the less it is enjoyable reading.  

Vane passed on about 3-4 years back in England (about 1999).  Interesting note, Reg Valentine certified him as a diver about ten years ago -  seems he didn't have a "C" card and rules are rules especially in old England.
