Overview

• A dramatic narrative of the Titanic disaster.
• 'If you only read one book about Titanic, read this one; if you've read every book published about the Titanic, read this one again' NAUTILUS INTERNATIONAL TELEGRAPH
• First modern reissue of the first-ever Titanic book. Filson Young pitched the book to publisher Grant Richards in the immediate aftermath of the sinking and 37 days later the book was on the shelves.
• An important book, the 'instant books' on the Titanic collected valuable first hand testimony published in the US and British newspapers of the day which have long since disappeared into rarefied library archives.
• Of huge interest to Titanic enthusiasts as the original edition is unobtainable.

The story of the Titanic is now well known. But in the months following the disaster wild speculation was rife. On Thursday 22 May 1912, a mere 37 days after the sinking, respected London publisher Grant Richards, delivered Filson Young's book to booksellers around the capital. It was the first attempt to plot the demise of the unsinkable ship from a well-respected writer who had already argued in the light of the Oceana sinking, for proper use of the wireless on board ships. Both Filson and Grant knew victims of the sinking and both worked hard to gather first-hand testimony to use in the book.

Much of his telling of the story still stands today and his speculations about the feeling of daily life aboard the doomed ship are used in books and films on the subject.
