Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the definitive book on the transatlantic steamship Titanic . The authors, both of whom are collectors of Titanic memorabilia, have put together what must be the most complete collection of illustrations and photographs of the Titanic ever assembled in a book. One could say that this is two books in onelarge portions of text are followed by page after page of well-captioned pictures which tell differing aspects of the story from designing to building, to trials, to the ports of departure, the disaster, the rescue, legal inquiries and remembrances . . . right down to the Titanic 's cargo manifest. Above all, this is the story of the victims of the sinking individual anecdotes are accompanied by a picture of the narrator. A highly recommended purchase for all libraries having an interest in the Titanic . John Kenny, San Francisco P.L.
