Overview

The Titanic Collection: Mementos of the Maiden Voyage by Eric Sauder, Hugh Brewster

The tragedy of the Titanic is chillingly present in the details: that the sea was calm and the night moonless; that the orchestra played "Songe d'Automne" as the icy water rose. Drawn from the archives of the Titanic Historical Society, The Titanic Collection uses real documents authentically reproduced to paint a riveting portrait of life on board. Reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century steamer trunk, this deluxe box contains more than 18 items, including the boarding pass of a man who missed the sailing, a brochure reviewing the amenities and civilities of the first class, deck maps, luggage stickers, postcards sent from the ship, and replicas of three tragic telegrams: the warning of icebergs ahead, the Titanic's distress call, and the heartrending announcement of the disaster. The Titanic Collection also includes a fact-filled booklet and timeline. Few will want to resist a closer look at the utterly compelling items in The Titanic Collection.
