There has been previous discussion on the list of crashes in 10.5  
that are associated with certain fonts, particularly things like  
small caps. I suspect that if you try to view the PDF with Preview,  
that will also crash.

If that's the case, this is a known problem, and not specific to  
TeXShop. You'll probably find that Adobe Reader can open and print  
the PDF file, but not applications based on Apple's PDFKit (like  
TeXShop). See the list archives for further discussion.
