Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

For most Americans, the pre-World War I iceberg sinking of the Titanic was a mythic moment; for the 1,517 men, women, and children who perished that day, it was literally the end of the line. This artfully reproduced contemporary graphic account presents the catastrophe as even the iconic film could not, rendering the deadly juxtaposition of this shipbuilding wonder with its rapid lurch toward oblivion. (P.S. This attractive edition reproduces the 1912 edition with a simulated worn cloth cover, hand-tinted maps, and gold foil-stamped pages.
