Original first with no additional copyright dates. Basis for the film starring Will Sampson and Bo Derek. This first edition was released to coincide with the film by Dino DeLaurentiis. While Herzog stated openly that his idea for the novel came well before the 1974 release of "Jaws" by Peter Benchley, he was obviously criticized for the timing of such a similar adventure. A surprisingly bad film by the way... Collectible copies of this book are quite scarce. No reading crease to spine. Hint of wear to edges. Red marker line to top edge.
