Titanic: The Ship Magnificent: Volume Two

Overview

The largest, most luxurious ship in the world, wrecked on her maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg in mid-Atlantic, has become the stuff of legends.

Overview

The largest, most luxurious ship in the world, wrecked on her maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg in mid-Atlantic, has become the stuff of legends. While everyone knows the new White Star liner was glamorous and full of millionaires when she sank, few appreciate just how luxurious she was. Even in third class, the accommodation was better than in first class on many older ships. From cobalt blue Spode china and Elkington plate silverware in the a-la-carte restaurant to the design of the boilers and fixtures and fittings onboard the world's most luxurious vessel, they tell the story of a liner built at the peak of the race between the British, French, and Germans to build bigger and better ships.

    These two books are he most amazing thing I have ever seen in way of Titanic. I had considered myself a Titanic expert, but I think I may have to retire!! This book's release has been rumored for the past few years, and it was thought that it was never going to come out. Titanic : The Ship Magnificent has been released in two volumes, and judging by the weight of both of them, I can see why. Beveridge and Andrews are well known in the Titanic community and have always been pushed to the back of the proverbial lifeboat-bus by the usual Titanic experts that seem to crop up in every documentary on cable television. These two guys, however, have always been the quiet experts, the ones that everyone knows about, but are left to the final credits. In this book, there are no holds barred, and with Hall and Klistorner on board also, it's like an avalanche of information that I'm sure would make Thomas Andrews proud. This book had to be done some day, and it took these four guys to do it. I'll be looking forward to seeing these gentlemen on the next dive to the wreck.------ These books are 'the' Titanic reference of the century. They cover the keel to the funnels, from bow to stern, and everything in between. Volume I is the construction half, and it may take a few reads to get the information down. These books will have to be read in multiple sessions, and beware, because Volume I is technical. The author's have provided illustrations 'over 1,500 over both volumes' an index and thorough glossary of terms to assist. Volume II is a little smoother, only because it handles passenger accommodations. The best part of these books is that here are no conspiracies, no passenger genealogies or inferior rivets or weak steel. This is unadulterated Titanic, pure and simple.
