1st.ed., 1969. 319 pp., frontis, + 14 other photo-plates & a map. D.j. 22 x 14cm. Lower edge of front board slightly faded (invisible under dust jacket) o/w V.G. This is a complete and documented account of the TITANIC disaster of 1912 : the first full-scale survey of a maritime event that continues to fascinate and capture the imagination. The author was urged to undertake the task by an old veteran of White Star Line who had long been a friend of the Officer of the Watch on board TITANIC the night she sank. The study is based on written and verbal testimony from eye-witnesses and includes significant evidence never brought before the Official Inquiry. Illustrated with 15 photographs and a map, this is a vivid account of the loss of White Star Line’s flagship on her maiden voyage in 1912.
